The Costs and Benefits of Animal Experiments Andrew Knight A timely and valuable contribution to the debate surrounding the use of animals in research. Andre Menache, Veterinary

Animals and Social Work: A Moral Introduction Thomas Ryan A pioneering contribution to the literature of social work ethics and moral philosophy.

Lucidly and cogently, this book argues why it is that animals ought to matter morally to social workers and engages in a sustained critique of the key moral principles that are deemed to underpin practice. It articulates an alternative moral principle that respects individuals irrespective of species membership. This principle informs a revised code of ethics, one which has profound theoretical and practical implications for social work and its practitioners.

Animals, Equality and Democracy Siobhan O’Sullivan A brave new perspective on the inequalities of our treatment of animals. Clive Phillips, Professor of Animal Welfare, University of Queensland, Australia

A fresh view in which the debate on the status of animals is reinvigorated by shifting the emphasis from ethical debate to political debate. O’Sullivan examines the structure of animal protection legislation and finds that it is deeply inequitable, with a tendency to favour those animals the community is most likely to see and engage with.

Animals and Public Health Aysha Akhtar A rich, stimulating, and provocative body of material on one of the most important and understudied moral problems in the modern world. Tom Beauchamp, Professor of Philosophy and Senior Research Scholar, Georgetown University, USA

A compelling argument of how human health is adversely affected by our poor treatment of animals. The author contends that in order to successfully confront the 21st Century’s health challenges, we need to broaden the definition of the word ‘public’ in public health to include non-human animals.
