Australian moral philosopher Peter Singer is a frequent advocate of animal ethics, which he teaches on at Princeton University. Animal Liberation "galvanised a generation into action. Groups sprang up around the world, equipped with a new vocabulary, a new set of ethics and a new sense of mission...Singer's book is widely known as the bible of the animal liberation movement" (Independent on Sunday). It is "[a] reasoned plea for the humane treatment of animals that galvanised the animal-rights movement the way the Rachel Carson's Silent Spring drew activists to environmentalism" (New York Times). And it is "[i]mportant and responsible...Everyone ought to read it" (Richard Adams). It is "[p]robably the single most influential document in the history of recent movements concerned with animal welfare" (Guardian).
