Beschreibung

Just as China is called the world factory for manufactured goods, it is also a world factory for manufactured animal cruelty in a new phenomenon of globalized animal cruelty. Animals in China examines animal protection in China in its legal, social and cultural contexts.

Zusammenfassung
'For anyone concerned about the suffering of animals, nothing can be more important than the attempt to improve animal protection in China. This movement will have to come predominantly from the Chinese people themselves, and they will take their own path, which may not be the same as the path currently being taken in the West. Nevertheless, we in the West may be able to encourage and assist them in some ways. To do that we first need to understand what the situation with regard to animals in China is. Reading Animals in China: Law and Society is an essential step towards that greater understanding. Deborah Cao covers a wide area, and although her focus is on the law, she also helps us to understand Chinese cultural practices with regard to animals and the philosophical background to them.' - Peter Singer, Ira W. DeCamp Professor of Bioethics at Princeton University, USA and Laureate Professor at the University of Melbourne, Australia
