A humanitarian (animalitarian?) defense of the idea that animals have rights. The
defense is emotional rather than philosophical. He has chapters on killing animals
for sport, vivisection, food, and clothing. He shows that man has been unnecessarily
cruel to animals, and he urges reform on all fronts from vegetarianism to
antivivisection. It includes an excellent bibliography.
