Editorial Reviews

Review

In Animal Rights, Human Wrongs Regan presents the philosophical underpinnings of human rights, then strives to prove that rights should logically be granted to some nonhuman creatures as well. He examines contractualism, utilitarianism, and views of direct and indirect duties, anticipating―and answering―a number of objections. Regan's companion volume Empty Cages (2004) covers similar ground, but with a different emphasis and broader scope. Keeping philosophical argumentation to a minimum, Regan describes animal exploitation and the path to animal advocacy. Empty Cages appeals to the heart. Animal Rights, Human Wrongs appeals to the head, and will be a useful addition to large philosophy or animal rights collections. Recommended. (CHOICE)

Regan's newest book, Animal Rights, Human Wrongs: An Introduction to Moral Philosophy, is a fine example of what makes Tom Regan famous for his work in animal rights. This book reveals philosophy at its best: readable explanations and critques of moral theories, theory brought to bear on pressing contemporary moral issues and mind-catching examples to illuminate both. Regan's newest book provides an excellent defence of human rights on his way to defending animal rights. (Journal of Moral Education)
