Descripció

In search of insight into late Victorian ideas about animals and theanimal rights movement, Rod Preece explores animal sensibility in thework of George Bernard Shaw. Shaw's reformist thought -particularly what Preece calls inclusive justice, which aimed toeliminate the suffering of both humans and animals - emerges inrelation to that of fellow reformers such as Edward Carpenter, AnnieBesant, and Henry Salt. This fascinating account of the characters andcrusades that shaped Shaw's philosophy sheds new light not onlyon modernist thought but also on the relationship between historicalsocialism and the ethical treatment of animals.
