Containing over 900 entries, this comprehensive guide provides students with books and accompanying web sites covering every aspect of animal rights, from vegetarianism to vivisection to feminist perspectives on the topic. Entries, which provide materials with varying viewpoints, are arranged alphabetically in six different chapters that address specific issues, such as fatal uses of animals and animal populations, encompassing the whole of the animal rights debate. This unique and user-friendly organization allows researchers to make a quick determination of which topics are of interest and which chapter has related materials, while annotations for each entry help the user choose the most appropriate of these materials. Introductions to each chapter explain the issues, as well as the arguments that surround them, and a general introduction to the volume thoroughly explains how to use the book. Each entry contains the following information: author, title, edition, series title, location of publisher, name of publisher, number of pages, year of publication, and International Standard Book Number. Annotations include the most important information available to help the researcher, including web sites that contain not only the full text of the book when available, but also excerpts and articles or interviews by the author; short quotations from the books; and short descriptions and summaries of the books. All the information provided allows students to locate exactly what they need, while encouraging them to explore other issues and differing viewpoints.
