Animal Revolution Summary

Animal Revolution: Changing Attitudes Towards Speciesism by Richard D. Ryder

When Richard Ryder coined the term 'speciesism' over two decades ago, the issue of animal rights was very much a minority concern that had associations with crankiness. Today, the animal rights movement is well-established across the globe and continues to gain momentum, with animal experimentation for medical research high on the agenda and very much in the news. This pioneering book - an historical survey of the relationship between humans and non-humans - paved the way for these developments. Revised, updated to include the movement's recent history and available in paperback for the first time, and now introducing Ryder's concept of 'painism', Animal Revolution is essential reading for anyone who cares about animals or humanity. Dr Richard D. Ryder is a psychologist, ethicist, historian and political campaigner. He is also a past chairman of the RSPCA. His other books include Victims of Science: The Use of Animals in Research, The Political Animal: The Conquest of Speciesism and Animal Welfare and the Environment (editor). As Mellon Professor, he taught Animal Welfare at Tulane University.

Animal Revolution Reviews

'A fascinating account of how animals have been regarded and treated from ancient times to the present day ... Buy this book for the history and the campaigning ... buy it for the psychology and the ideas too. Even if you don't agree with him, Ryder is never less than stimulating.' International Society for Applied Ethology Newsletter 'It would be difficult to find a text that provides a more comprehensive history of man's changing use and relationship to non-human animals.' 'A book full of valuable observations and insights? This book has something important to say and Richard Ryder knows how to say it.' Freethinker (2000) Richard Ryder analyses such springs of human conduct as machismo, stoicism and squeamishness. He has never been afraid to court controversy or to unleash uncomfortable new ideas. This is a bracing book. Times Literary Supplement As an introduction to the history of human exploitation of animals, and the increasingly effective attempts by the enlightened to make amends, this book cannot be bettered. Dr. Robert Garner - University of Leicester
