MEDIA REVIEWS

'Clear, insightful look at all sides of the argument about our treatment of animals.' - Sunday Times

'Hursthouse's Ethics, Humans and Other Animals...remains an excellent, self-guided amalgam of primary sources and secondary commentary by an author who represents a virtue-ethics approach to inter-species morality; it is loaded with helpful pedagogical instruments.' - Ralph Acampora, Hofstra University, Society & Animals
