Description: Described by Jeffrey Masson as the single best introduction to animal rights ever written, this new book by Tom Regan dispels the negative image of animal rights advocates perpetrated by the mass media, unmasks the fraudulent rhetoric of humane treatment favored by animal exploiters, and explains why existing laws function to legitimize institutional cruelty.
