Cass Sunstein and Martha Nussbaum bring together an all-star cast
of contributors to explore the legal and political issues that
underlie the campaign for animal rights and the opposition to it.
Addressing ethical questions about ownership, protection against
unjustified suffering, and the ability of animals to make their own
choices free from human control, the authors offer numerous
different perspectives on animal rights and animal welfare. They
show that whatever one's ultimate
conclusions, the relationship between human beings and nonhuman
animals is being fundamentally rethought. This book offers a
state-of-the-art treatment of that rethinking.
Cass R. Sunstein is the Administrator of the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs in the Obama Administration and the Felix Frankfurter Professor of Law at Harvard University. He is the author of many books, including the New York Times best-seller Nudge (with Richard Thaler), Infotopia, Republic 2.0, Worst-Case Scenarios, Radicals in Robes, Why Societies Need Dissent, and Democracy and the Problem of Free Speech.
