About the Author

Robert Garner is Professor of Politics at the University of Leicester.


In this highly anticipated book, Robert Garner presents a clear and persuasive new theory of justice for animals. Because the theory aims to be feasible, and attuned to what can be achieved given the realities of our societies, the book is required reading for all those interested in the future of animal protection. * Alasdair Cochrane, Lecturer in Political Theory, University of Sheffield * As a welcome defence of animal rights, Garner's book is among the leading accounts of justice for animals and a powerful, practical weapon against the injustices our species inflicts upon so many suffering animals. * Jeffrey Spring, Political Studies Review *
