The Animal Rights Movement in the United States, 1975-1990: An Annotated Bibliography

Hardback
The animal rights movement has been described by one national news magazine as the fastest-growing movement in the United States. In spite of its increasing popularity, however, balanced information about the animal rights movement and its issues is not always easy to find. This bibliography addresses the movement's goals, organizations, philosophical underpinnings, and political, educational, and legislative activities between 1975 and 1990. Chapter headings include Activists and Organizations, Philosophy, Ethics, and Religion, Factory-farming, and Vegetarianism, Companion Animals, Trapping and Fur-farming, Use of Animals in Entertainment, and Animal Experimentation. Comprehensive subject and author indexes provide additional avenues of access to entries. With over 1,300 annotated citations drawn from scholarly journals, popular magazines, monographs, books, newspapers, animal rights literature, and U.S. government publications, this bibliography will prove highly useful as a reference source to anyone interested in animals, animal rights and welfare, or the evolution and history of a controversial contemporary social reform movement.
