This book is a collection of articles that document how animals are cruelly mistreated and commercially exploited for profit. In doing so, the articles, which are grouped in six primary areas, lay out the fundamental issues of animal rights. All the articles were previously published in The Animals' Agenda, the leading magazine of the Animal Rights movement. The book contains work by some of the leading authorities on animal protection issues, including: Jim Mason, Marc Bekoff, Mike Markarian, Betsy Swart, Norm Phelps, Wayne Pacelle, Pat Derby, Gene Bauston, Karen Davis, Richard Schwartz, Don Barnes, and many others. All articles are up-to-date and full of important facts.
