Animal rights are the belief that animals have a right to be free of human use and exploitation, but there is a great deal of confusion about what that means. The writings in this anthology have been selected to introduce the reader to the broadest possible spectrum of viewpoints on animal rights. One of the essays in particular, Animals Have Rich Emotional Lives and Consciousness, will get your students thinking critically. Disparate viewpoints are encapsulated with the use of a question-and-response format. Students are encouraged to weigh the merits of divergent opinions, so that they may understand the subject inclusively. Important facts, perfect for report writing, are dispersed throughout.
