The Palgrave Macmillan Animal Ethics Series
Edited by
Andrew Linzey, Oxford Centre for Animal Ethics
Priscilla Cohn, Penn State Abington
Clair Linzey, Oxford Centre for Animal Ethics
 
 
 
In recent years, there has been a growing interest in the ethics of our treatment of animals. Philosophers have led the way, and now a range of other scholars have followed from historians to social scientists. From being a marginal issue, animals have become an emerging issue in ethics and in multidisciplinary inquiry. This series will explore the challenges that Animal Ethics poses, both conceptually and practically, to traditional understandings of human-animal relations.
 
Specifically, the Series will: provide a range of key introductory and advanced texts that map out ethical positions on animals; publish pioneering work written by new, as well as accomplished, scholars, and  produce texts from a variety of disciplines that are multidisciplinary in character or have multidisciplinary relevance
