From the Back Cover
Since its original publication in 1975, this groundbreaking work has awakened millions of people to the existence of "speciesism"—our systematic disregard of nonhuman animals—inspiring a worldwide movement to transform our attitudes to animals and eliminate the cruelty we inflict on them.
In Animal Liberation, author Peter Singer exposes the chilling realities of today's "factory farms" and product-testing procedures—destroying the spurious justifications behind them, and offering alternatives to what has become a profound environmental and social as well as moral issue. An important and persuasive appeal to conscience, fairness, decency, and justice, it is essential reading for the supporter and the skeptic alike.
About the Author
Peter Singer's other books include Writings on an Ethical Life, Practical Ethics, and The Life You Can Save, among many others. He is the Ira W. DeCamp Professor of Bioethics at Princeton University's Center for Human Values.

One complaint is, in the Index, Aquinas is said to appear on pages 186, 193-195, and 244. I complain because Aquinas is also mentioned on page 196. I know, I'm splitting hairs.
I highly recommend it; I expect it would change what you eat for dinner.
This is a classic text in the animal liberation movement. If you are new to animal rights, this book will broaden your perspective. If you're already well versed in the animal rights literature then you probably won't get too much additional information from this book simply because this book is the foundation of many others on this subject. Still, I enjoyed the read, and recommend it highly!
