UserpicAnimal Rights, 2nd Edition
12.09.09

The second, and heavily revised, edition of my book Animal Rights is published this month by Palgrave-Macmillan (again). The first edition - Animal Rights: A Philosophical Defence came out in '99. And now, a mere ten years later, comes the second. I've dropped the chapter on liberalism, added a chapter on virtue ethics, a new half a chapter on animal minds, and greatly expanded my contractarian defence of animal rights. Also, I've extensively re-written the remaining stuff to avoid needless technicality (of which I used to be quite fond ten years ago). And there's a shiny new subtitle - moral theory and practice.

Most importantly: this time it's in paperback, so people might actually be able to afford it.
