The Book That Started A RevolutionSince its original publication in 1975, this groundbreaking work has awakened millions of concerned men and women to the shocking abuse of animals everywhere -- inspiring a worldwide movement to eliminate much of the cruel and unnecessary laboratory animal experimentation of years past. In this newly revised and expanded edition, author Peter Singer exposes the chilling realities of today's "factory forms" and product-testing procedures -- offering sound, humane solutions to what has become a profound environmental and social as well as moral issue. An important and persuasive appeal to conscience, fairness, decency and justice, Animal Liberation is essential reading for the supporter and the skeptic alike.

Written with gusto, this book really sets out to destroy excuses and to convince the reader of becoming a vegetarian or even a vegan. Lots of source notes, but they're rather dated now (couldn't he get a research assistant?).
One of the odd things that I noticed, but was not made a big deal of, was that a Veterans Administration Hospital spent million of dollars to zap mice (if I remember rightly). Shouldn't they have been spending that money on caring for ill and dying veterans, or at least research relevant to helping people like them, rather than obvious, trivial, or useless things? I wonder how money is wasted on what is basically a make work spending programs for experimenters.

Although this book is dated, the inforamtion still paints a good picture for the current state of humanity and their prejudices towards animals.
