Some of us feel a kinship with animals, seeing them as part of the same process of Creation as ourselves. Others see humans as superior and animals as "ours" to exploit by right.

Through his probing exploration of the spiritual and philosophical roots of animal rights, Michael Fox shows that humane and compassionate treatment of the animal world is both a spiritual and a survival imperative.

He worked at the State Research Hospital in Galesburg, Illinois, and at Washington University in Missouri, before moving to Washington, D.C., in 1976 to become the director of the Institute for the Study of Animal Problems and, later, vice president of the Humane Society of the United States.
