"Animal Liberation Now," a new book by Peter Singer, Ira W. DeCamp Professor of Bioethics at the University Center for Human Values was published on May 23. The book renews and updates Singer's 1975 classic, "Animal Liberation," which is widely credited with triggering the modern animal rights movement, and includes additional material on such topics as the impact of meat consumption on climate change, the scientific research on which animals are likely to be capable of feeling pain, and the progress made - and yet to be made - by the animal movement over the past 50 years.
Over the coming 10 days, Professor Singer will be in conversation with hosts at events in Washington D.C., Los Angeles, San Francisco, and New York. The conversations will be followed by a Q&A with the audience. Event details can be found here.
Professor Singer was invited to talk about "Animal Liberation Now" on the Faculty Bookshelf. The interview can be read here.
