About this Web Site
||"I am fond of pigs. Dogs look up to us. Cats look down on us. Pigs treat us as equals." Attributed to Winston Churchill (1874 - 1965)|
You do not have to scream emotional abuse at people in the street or commit arson to work for animal rights. This web site, How to Do Animal Rights
, is a completely free online-book that shows you how to work for animal rights legally and with confidence. It briefs you about doing animal rights as an activity and informs you about animal rights problems and ethics so that you can defend your actions rationally.
You may copy for free any or all of the text of this web site and the illustrations for your animal rights activities, eg for your web site / blog, newsletter, magazine or book.
However, do not expect to find herein quick and unequivocal answers to problematic questions about animal rights, for as Marc Bekoff says:
"For many questions about how animals should be treated by humans there are no 'right' or 'wrong' answers. However, there are better and worse answers." Animal Passions and Beastly Virtues. 2006:227
About the Author
I started writing How to Do Animal Rights
in 2007 because there were no published books on how to do animal rights and one needed writing. I'm an animal rights activist, conservationist and biologist, with a degree in biology and psychology and a doctorate in animal behavioural ecology. Ben Isacat is my nom de plume (aka Roger Panaman) and I live near Oxford, Britain.
