The Dangerous Rhetoric of Contemporary Animal Rights Law: A Review of Marek Muller’s Impersonating Animals
Muller’s text offers a direct challenge to the burgeoning animal law movement, asking advocates and lawyers to interrogate their tactics, rhetoric, and goals.
In a conversation with Dr. Gillespie, we discussed her book, why she says that animal liberation isn’t possible within a capitalist system and veganism is not just a diet, and her thoughts on the relationship between academic work and activism.
In an interview with activist and children’s book author Clare Druce, we discussed her recent book and her thoughts on how to reach young people with messages about protecting animals.
John Howard Moore’s book The Universal Kinship has been held up as a foundational antispeciesist text, but the book is unfortunately full of pseudo-scientific racism.
The sensationalism obscured what the main focus of the series should have been: that the abuse of privately-owned big cats is a serious problem, and that legislation must be put in place to fix it.

When I first went vegan, changing my wardrobe proved more complicated than changing my diet. I wish I knew back then about these seven amazing vegan brands!
Going vegan isn’t something that will happen en masse or suddenly. But at least thinking about it? Acknowledging the problem? Trying to see where our own inconsistencies lie?

For those who have not considered this topic, this book could serve as an enlightening lesson on the importance of animals in human history. For the more initiated reader, particularly those already concerned with animal liberation, the half-formed ethical and philosophical ideas Fagan puts forth leave much to be desired.
According to Wayne Pacelle, president of HSUS and author of The Humane Economy, animal protection should not be seen as a sacrifice, but an opportunity. If this is so, the logical conclusion must be to promote veg alternatives to meat, eggs, and dairy, rather than animal products produced with slightly less cruelty.
