Rollin and Jane Goodall are featured, as well as selections from Tom Regan, Jane Goodall, Donald Griffin, Temple Grandin, Ben A. Minteer, Christine Korsgaard and Mark Rowlands.

This revised and updated Third Edition includes 31 new readings on a range of subjects, including animal rights, captive chimpanzees, industrial farm animal production, genetic engineering, keeping cetaceans in captivity, animal cruelty, and animal activism. The Third Edition also is printed with a slightly larger page format and in an easier-to-read typeface.
Featuring contextualizing introductions by the editors, study questions and further reading suggestions as the end of each chapter, this will be essential reading for any student taking a course in the subject.

Armstrong, Environmental Ethics: Divergence and Convergence.Review:
"We are very fortunate to have this anthology in its 3rd edition available for classroom use. The essays cover a wide range of topics that make it easy for teachers to devote a whole course (or a part of a course) to the topic of animal ethics. The selections are judicious and the introductions insightful. I especially like the blend of theoretical and practical concerns, a blend that makes perfect sense from a pedagogical point of view."
