Abstract

The Global Guide to Animal Protection succeeds in corralling the often disparate voices across the broad spectrum of animal advocacy and scholarship, from animal welfare to animal rights. Simply put, animal protection, as an unsentimental concept, acknowledges that the way human cultures act upon animals makes humans, in turn, responsible for their well-being. As a global guide, the book reaches beyond the modern humane movement of the West to explore changing global perceptions of animals, long and short histories of non-European animal advocacy and thought, and new models for advancing causes for animals across human cultures and in international law.
