Product description

From the Back Cover

The world’s first anthology designed to employ the power of fiction to illuminate our moral relationship with animals, Other Nations boasts a superb collection of writings from writers of great distinction—including Ernest Hemingway, George Orwell, and Alice Walker. By organizing the literary pieces according to the means by which human beings relate to the animals discussed—as companions, as sources of food, as objects of sport and entertainment, and as subjects in scientific research—preeminent scholars Tom Regan and Andrew Linzey enable readers to relate these texts (and these animals) to their own experiences and to the manifold issues now discussed in public forums. While the editors believe the time is ripe for radical change in the way human beings see and treat animals, this collection nonetheless presents various and contrary viewpoints, leaving readers to come to their own moral conclusions.

About the Author

Tom Regan is Emeritus Professor of Philosophy at North Carolina State University. Among his major contributions are The Case for Animal Rights; The Struggle for Animal Rights; Defending Animal Rights; Animal Rights, Human Wrongs: An Introduction to Moral Philosophy; and, his newest book, Empty Cages: Facing the Challenge of Animal Rights. He lives in Raleigh, North Carolina. Andrew Linzey is Director of the Oxford Centre for Animal Ethics and a member of the Faculty of Theology at at Oxford University. He is the author or editor of more than twenty books, including Animal Rights: A Christian Assessment; Christianity and the Rights of Animals; and Why Animal Suffering Matters: Philosophy, Theology, and Practical Ethics .
