New Books

The Oxford Centre for Animal Ethics in partnership with publishers Palgrave Macmillan have released the first two books in a new series on animal ethics.

An Introduction to Animals and Political Theory by Alasdair Cochrane (ISBN 9780230239265) is structured around the five most important schools within contemporary political theory: liberalism, utilitarianism, communitarianism, Marxism, and feminism. This is the first introductory level text to offer an accessible overview on the status of animals in contemporary political theory. Alasdair Cochrane is Lecturer in Human Rights at the London School of Economics and Political Science. He has published on animal ethics, bioethics, human rights and environmental ethics in journals such as Political Studies, Utilitas, Bioethics and Res Publica.

An Introduction to Animals and the Law by Joan Schaffner.

Joan Schaffner’s exploration of the newly emerging, diverse, and controversial area of animal law, An Introduction to Animals and the Law (ISBN 9780230235649), presents a basic survey of the laws designed to protect animals, analysing and critiquing them, and proposing a future where the legal regime properly recognizes and protects the inherent worth of all animals. Joan Schaffner is an Associate Professor of Law at the George Washington University Law School and Directs the George Washington Animal Law Programme.

A further three books in the series are to be issued in June 2011: Andrew Knight’s Animal Experiments, Claire Molloy’s Popular Media and Animals, and Nicola Hoggard Creegan’s Animal Suffering and the Problem of Evil.
