Peter Singer is Professor of Bioethics at Princeton University. He was born in Melbourne in 1946. His major works include Animal Liberation, Practical Ethics, How Are We to Live? and The Life You Can Save.
The argument is short, simple, and irrefutable; the supporting detail - what is done to animals in the course of turning them into food for human beings - is profoundly upsetting. Whoever is not persuaded by these essays of Peter Singer's does not have ears to hear. -- J. M. Coetzee
