'Ethics and Animals is a wonderfully readable introduction to the range of issues that come under that heading. Lori Gruen is not only a fine philosopher, but also a person with genuine empathy for animals, and the ability to express that in writing.' Peter Singer, University Center for Human Values, Princeton University
"....Ethics introduces readers to the many ways humans use animals, and to the schools of ethical thought that we can use to evaluate the morality of this use.... offer thought-provoking guidelines.... Gruen makes ethical arguments matter, even in situations that seem morally clear." --Piper Hoffman, writer and attorney, Our Hen House
"Ethics and Animals: An Introduction is a fine introduction to a set of issues concerning the variety of ways that humans interact with, treat, and sometimes exploit non-human animals. While Gruen brings the resources of both empirical science and normative ethical theory to bear on the issues, her book is clearly written, non-technical, and suitable for a general audience, including students from a variety of disciplines, and the reference list provides excellent resources for further reading..." --Justin Moss, Ph.D., Adjunct Professor of Philosophy, Avila University, Kansas City, MO, Metapsychology Online Reviews
"...Ethics and Animals is concise, clearly argued, and highly readable. It is more enjoyable and accessible than standard strictly academic prose.... Gruen, with deep intellectual honesty, manages to give a good presentation of the status quaestionis, updating readers on the focus of the debate. If the author aimed to show that the way in which humans treat animals in the contemporary world is mostly immoral, the objective was achieved." --Carlos Naconecy, Oxford Centre, Journal of Animal Ethics
