The Animal Manifesto
Six Reasons for Expanding Our Compassion FootprintBook - 2010
In this inspirational call to action, Marc Bekoff, the world's leading expert on animal emotions, gently shows that improving our treatment of animals is a matter of rethinking our many daily decisions and "expanding our compassion footprint." He demonstrates that animals experience a rich range of emotions, including empathy and compassion, and that they clearly know right from wrong. Driven by moral imperatives and pressing environmental realities, Bekoff offers six compelling reasons for changing the way we treat animals -- whether they're in factory farms, labs, circuses, or our vanishing wilderness. The result is a well-researched, informative guide that will change animal and human lives for the better.
