Booklist Review

This approachable, comprehensive guide to animal rights contains useful information, important addresses, and workable suggestions. Short chapters are devoted to such topics as clothing, laboratory animals, food products, pets, wildlife, and childhood education. In nonstrident, compassionate tones, consumers are urged to wear cotton and other natural fibers rather than fur and leather clothing, to become vegetarians, to purchase cruelty-free cosmetics and household products, and to boycott circuses and rodeos. Numerous resources, including books and other publications, activist and legislative organizations, and relevant businesses, are listed in this important sourcebook. ~--Sue-Ellen Beauregard


Library Journal Review

This book is aimed at individuals who, while not ready to join the ranks of animal rights activists, share an interest in improving the treatment of animals in our society. Each chapter focuses on a different aspect of our lifestyle (eating, dress, education, etc.) and how it affects animal welfare. The information, culled from a variety of pamphlets, brochures, and fact sheets published by animal rights groups, is presented in a simple, concise format. Lists of sources for further information, companies offering ``cruelty-free'' products, and animal rights organizations by specific interest area are included. While Michael Fox's Inhumane Society ( LJ 8/90) provides a more extensive and philosophical commentary, this book is an inexpensive and worthwhile primer on the subject.-- Deborah Emerson, Monroe Community Coll.
