Abstract

Animal Law in Australasia: Continuing the Dialogue provides a comprehensive, thought provoking discussion and analysis of animal law in Australasia while critiquing the existing paradigm that presumes human desire always outweighs animal suffering and proposing reforms to provide better legal protection for all animals. The authors of each chapter, experts in relevant fields such as academia, private practice, and government, describe the theoretical, practical, and political obstacles faced by animal advocates and offer solutions for changing the status quo. This review provides a summary of the text and notes that although focused on Australasia, the book is relevant worldwide.
