<p>Expanded to two volumes, the comprehensively updated new edition, "Encyclopedia of Animal Rights and Animal Welfare: Second Edition" is an extraordinary publishing event. It remains the only reference to cover the entire scope of animal rights and welfare from a global interdisciplinary perspective, with an international team of contributors assembled by Marc Bekoff covering animal treatment issues in the United States, China, India, Kenya, Australia, and many other nations. <p>With a focused emphasis on fairness and justice for animals evident on every page, "Encyclopedia of Animal Rights and Animal Welfare: Second Edition" offers clear explanations of hot-button topics like puppy mills, endangered species in zoos, no-kill shelters, dog fighting, factory farming and disease, veganism, conservation ethics, wildlife contraception, and more.

The work helps readers understand the different viewpoints of animal welfare advocates who want to improve conditions for animals and animal rights activists who don't want animals used at all.<p>
