Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 7 Up-Following an introductory overview, excerpts from books and periodicals published between 1972 and 2000 cover such topics as the founding of the ASPCA, the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) movement, and four landmark cases. Differing viewpoints allow for a balanced perspective, and the contents page contains annotations for each essay. Useful for research and reports, this illuminating volume complements Helen Cothran's Animal Experimentation (Greenhaven, 2002) and Steven Wise's Rattling the Cage: Toward Legal Rights for Animals (Perseus, 1999).

"In the new American Social Movements series, these anthologies of articles, speeches, interviews, and scholarly essays are for an older, sophisticated audience. There are some fascinating present-day writings sure to open up discussion...There's as much here for adults as there is for teens; in fact, the books would be excellent for family discussion."
