You might think that the protection of animals' rights is a modern, Western concern. In fact, people all over the world and down the ages have cared what happens to animals, and not just the cute mammals. Today animals need protecting more than ever: their lives are used and abused in laboratories, zoos and hunts, and they are reared intensively on farms.

And it includes a practical day to day guide to what you can do to minimise exploitation.

Together [such books] hint at a resurgence of the grand educational tradition... Closest to the hot headline issues are The No-Nonsense Guides. These target those topics that a large army of voters care about, but that politicos evade. Arguments, figures and documents combine to prove that good journalism is far too important to be left to (most) journalists.' Boyd Tonkin,The Independent, London 'For as long as I have been writing about North-South issues - and that's longer than I care to remember - the New Internationalist has been there with pungent, pithy, probing, political analysis. Now they've had the bright idea to encapsulate some of their accumulated wisdom in the No-Nonsense Guides. You can't go wrong - I personally intend to order the whole series' Susan George, Transnational Institute, and author of The Debt Trap and Another World is Possible if...
