From Library Journal
Newkirk, cofounder of People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA), has written the definitive book for those who care about the treatment of animals. She exposes institutional cruelty by discussing such topics as animals in entertainment or used as food, for sport, and in clothing. She covers dissection in schools, companion animals, and animals used in experimentation. Newkirk ends each chapter with a list of actions, ranging from personal choices that the average person can make to stop animal suffering (boycott Proctor & Gamble, wear nonanimal fabrics, take plant-based estrogen drugs rather than Premarin) to public actions (demonstrate at rodeo events, protest traveling animal acts, be a hunt saboteur). This book belongs in all libraries and can be used to educate children and young adults about the plight of nonhuman animals in our society.APeggie Partello, Keene State Coll. Lib., NH
