This thought-provoking book will ask what it is to be human, what to be animal, and what are the natures of the relationships between them. This is accomplished with philosophical and ethical discussions, scientific evidence and dynamic theoretical approaches. Attitudes to Animals will also encourage us to think not only of our relationships to non-human animals, but also of those to other, human, animals. This book provides a foundation that the reader can use to make ethical choices about animals. It will challenge readers to question their current views, attitudes and perspectives on animals, nature and development of the human-animal relationship. Human perspectives on the human-animal relationships reflect what we have learned, together with spoken and unspoken attitudes and assumptions, from our families, societies, media, education and employment.

'... much good material is contained in Attitudes to Animals, and I believe its readers will be challenged and informed in ways likely to increase their understanding and compassion for animals. I commend this book to the animal welfare constituency.' F. Barbara Olans, Animal Welfare
'... this book presents an informative and interesting read and I would recommend it to anyone involved in using animals, either for educational or research purposes.' Alison J. Hanlon, Animal Behaviour
'This is an important book, not only for those who associate closely with animals, but for us all.' Jennifer Scott, Biologist
'Students of biology, animal sciences, veterinary science and agriculture, all need to consider their attitudes to using animals. This book will be useful not only to these students, but also to their instructors.' Judith K. Blackshaw, Anthrozooes
" of the most significant social debates in the next century will be about the roles of animals in society-the human-animal bond. This debate began in the 1970s and with the establishment of the 'Animal Protection Movement.' The concept of animal cognition, consciousness and self-awareness is central to this movement. This book contributes significantly to that debate by reviewing current neurophysiological, behavioral and philosophical work relevant to the issue. I believe that it helps bring into better focus some answers about the role animals will play in society in the coming century. It is indeed a thought-provoking book." The Quarterly Review of Biology
