More than twenty years after its publication, Peter Singer's Ethics into Action continues to inspire new generations of activists through its portrayal of Henry Spira and the animal rights movement. With a new preface from the author, this edition celebrates the continued importance of social movements and provides a path towards furthering changes in our world.


 


Singer, one of the world's most influential living philosophers, reveals how Henry Spira influenced major corporations by simultaneously applying targeted pressures and removing existing obstacles to achieve his ethical goals. As people all over the world continue to struggle for justice, Spira's method of affecting change serves as a proven model for activists fighting across a wide range of causes.
How fitting that Peter Singer, another giant in the field, should write his story and bring it to a wider public. This book, like Spira himself, will truly make a difference.
Peter Singer has been called "the world's most influential living philosopher" as well as the father of the modern animal rights movement. He teaches at Princeton University and the University of Melbourne and is known especially for his work on the ethics of our treatment of animals, for his controversial critique of the sanctity of life doctrine in bioethics, and for his writings on the obligations of the affluent to aid those living in extreme poverty. In 2005 Time magazine named Singer one of the 100 most influential people in the world, and the Gottlieb Duttweiler Institute ranked him 3rd among Global Thought Leaders for 2013. Singer has written, co-authored, edited or co-edited more than 40 books, including Practical Ethics; The Expanding Circle; How Are We to Live?; Rethinking Life and Death; The Ethics of What We Eat (with Jim Mason); The Life You Can Save; and, most recently, The Most Good You Can Do. His works have appeared in more than 25 languages.
