"This book traces the Animal Rights/Environmental Ethics dispute through the key steps of its history, in the form of the most important original articles, and points the way to a resolution. It is useful to the scholar interested in the animal rights issue and it is appropriate as a textbook in a course in Environmental Ethics at any level, from beginning to graduate. For the beginner, it teaches the key issues in non-technical language and for the scholar it traces the history of an important dispute and clearly distinguishes basic ideas in their historical context. "— Donald C. Lee, University of New Mexico
"The best thing about this book is that it brings together (for the first time) the most important articles concerning the debate between animal rights and environmental ethics. A wide variety of views is represented, which provides significant amounts of material for classroom discussion. " — Eric Katz, New Jersey Institute of Technology
