Do animals have moral rights? If so, what does this mean? What sorts of mental lives do animals have, and how should we understand their welfare? After putting forward answers to these questions, David DeGrazia explores the implications for how we treat animals in connection with our diet, zoos, and research.

This is an ideal introduction to the topic. David DeGrazia does a superb job of bringing all the key issues together in a balanced way, in a volume that is both short and very readable." —Peter Singer
