1.0 out of 5 stars Only if you have trouble sleeping., 27 Oct 1996
By A Customer
This review is from: Rain without Thunder: The Ideology of the Animal Rights Movement (Paperback)
First, this is a book for the anointed. Those who don't
already think cows deserve personhood need not bother;
there's absolutely nothing here that will convince you.

For anyone left: Written in wandering, equivocal academic
speak and crushingly redundant, this is a book that took
230 pages to say what could have been said in ten, and still
failed to say much at all. Synopsis:

"Animals are persons, too. 'Mainstream' animal rights groups
aid animal 'exploiters' because
they still behave as if animals are, well, animals.
'Mainstream' animal rights groups are also sexist because
they only throw red paint on women. We must demand an
immediate end to institutionalized animal use. We'd be silly
to expect an immediate end to institutionalized animal use.
We must demand incremental changes within the 'all animal
use must end' paradigm. I don't know how, but let's talk."

Unless you'd like to give this book to someone too
comfortable with the state of higher education -
Mr. Francione is a law professor at Rutgers - I'd strongly
suggest you save your money.

If you must read it, take mine. Please.
