This innovative book explores the emerging area of animal rights law. Animal Law: Welfare, Interest, and Rights asks the question, “What are the arguments for animal rights as a matter of philosophy and at law?” David Favre, a well-known figure in the area of animal rights, discusses how the legal system today deals with animal-human relationships as well as how it may do so in the future.
