About

Overview

There are more than 6 billion animals used in the United States. Over 95 percent of them are used for food and the rest are ued for research, teaching, labor, entertainment, and other purposes. How these animals are treated has become a deepening controversy, with rights advocates on one side, professionals who work with animals often on the other, and the general public, with varying degrees of sympathy, in the middle.

Animal Rights: A Reference Handbook, Second Edition maintains the balance and accessibility of the first edition, letting readers decide the bounds of human responsibility toward animals. It surveys a wide range of controversies surrounding the use of animals in such fields as the food industry, medical research and the realm of entertainment, as well as the tremendous surge in scientific discoveries and technological advances that have led to new conversations on animal rights in the 21st century.
