From the use of animals in experiments to develop medicine for people to the preservation of endangered species in zoos, human beings' responsibility to and for their fellow animals has become an increasingly controversial subject. This book aims to provide an overview of the different perceptives on the issues of animal rights and animal welfare. A wide variety of well-chosen entries, defining terms and concepts and providing brief biographies, are covered: philosophy, psychology, ethology, anthropology, ecology, sociology, law, history, politics, theology, veterinary science and public administration.
