For the Love of Animals: The Rise of the Animal Protection Movement

For the Love of Animals: The Rise of the Animal Protection Movement - Kathryn Shevelow This scholarly examination of the animal protection movement may be triggering for some folks, in its description of blood sport and the issues in England that led to the beginnings of animal protection in the 19th Century. The author does provide information on which chapters contain the most descriptions, but there are other matters dispersed throughout. It is not at all gratuitous, for it informs the reader about the social mores of the time and also of the challenges faced by early reformers. Not for the faint of heart, and certainly not a light read ... but well worth the effort.
