520 The groundbreaking book that challenged the ethics of our
treatment of animals and jump-started the animal rights
movement́⁰₄with a new preface by the author First
published in 1975, Animal Liberation created a sensation
upon its release, shaking the world's philosophical and
animal-protection circles to their cores. Now, forty years
later, Peter Singer's landmark work still looms large as a
foundational and canonical text of animal advocacy.

treatment of animals is that which maximizes good and
minimizes suffering. In examining the cruelty of factory

compelling rational argument in a rousing and riveting
read. This ebook features an illustrated biography of
Peter Singer, including rare photos from the author's
