We Animals - drawn from thousands of photos taken over fifteen years, this volume of photographs illustrates and investigates animals in the human environment: whether they're being used for food, fashion and entertainment, or research, or are being rescued to spend their remaining years in sanctuaries. McArthur provides valuable lessons about our treatment of animals, makes animal industries visible and accountable, and widens our circle of compassion to include all sentient beings. The book also includes "Notes from the Field", which is a small compilation of journal entries written while doing investigative work both at home and abroad.About the author:
