On Their Own Terms: Animal Liberation for the 21st Century

4.60  ·  Rating details ·  5 ratings  ·  3 reviews
Ours is a time of extinctions and climate change. The concept of animal liberation has never been more relevant, but it's due for renovation. This book updates the idea, as it explores the hits and misses of animal-welfare and animal-rights advocacy, and discusses the potential impact of the burgeoning vegan population on social and environmental movements.

Interesting read. The author makes you think about such basic acts as owning a pet. Is it really good to have pets? The discussion of animal rights vs. liberation is thought provoking. To learn that many so-called animal rights groups are okay with and even applaud some companies for changing practices to make animals less tortured was eye opening. Reducing the torture should not be the goal---eliminating it should be. Hall has many notes, some of which are quotes from Peter Singer whose book An ...more

this book seems aimed at people such as myself who are already vegan advocates and want to consider fine tuning their views and approach. it did a great job of that. I am not certain I'll be making all the changes suggested, but I will certainly be aware of them, which gives me the opportunity to reconsider as I go along. the AR Non-profit I lead is already pretty close to her views, having been informed by them for many years, but this was my introduction to her ideas directly.

A quick read that is an update on the animal liberation position. I found most important in this book was the distinction between animal welfare and animal rights and how the former's incrementalism only ever seems to lead to nicer cages.

For someone who is already vegan, this book may not present a whole lot of new information for you in terms of the atrocities that go on even under more "humane" practices as they are so deceptively marketed. But I do think it's a nice little refresher on those
