Temple Law Review, Vol. 79, No. 1291, 2006

With their edited volume, "Animal Rights: Current Controversies and New Directions," Cass Sunstein and Martha Nussbaum have helped to propel animal rights into the mainstream of legal thought. This review of the book analyzes the various theoretical strains in the growing field of animal law, including utilitarianism, moral rights, and humanism. Discussing the limitations and strengths of each theory, the review then connects these theories to developments in animal law and the program of law reform.
