Why Animals Matter would be a great resource for schools, colleges, researchers, and students … as well as people who simply want to learn more about animal protection. The book is well-organized, level-headed, and a good read. The authors use common-sense explanations and examples in this heavily-footnoted book to illustrate the fact that animals suffer at our hands. Why Animals Matter illustrates the hidden suffering of most animals with whom we share the earth including farm animals, wildlife, laboratory animals, companion animals, and animals used for fur. Why Animals Matter describes the industries that transform animals into food, sport, tools and clothing, but goes on to explain what we all can do to reduce animals suffering. The environment and people also suffer from our mistreatment of animals. Why Animals Matter illustrates the degradation of our planet in our hunger for more and cheaper meat and the suffering of workers who are trapped by the industry, work in unsafe and unsanitary conditions, and are blocked from unionizing. It also details the environmental and social problems caused by other industries that profit from animals.
