ANIMAL EQUALITY

Language and Liberation

Author : Joan Dunayer

ISBN : 9780970647559

Publisher : Lantern Books

Pages : 272

Format : Hardback

Description : The first book on language and non-human oppression, Animal Equality shows that deceptive, biased words sustain injustice towards nonhuman animals. Speciesism, the failure to accord other animals equal consideration and respect, survives through lies.
Contrasting evolutionary reality with popular notions of human uniqueness and superiority, Animal Equality discredits the term lower animals. Compelling evidence of nonhuman thought and emotion debunks language that characterises other animals as unreasoning or insensitive.
Vivid exposes of hunting, sport-fishing, zoos, aquaprisons, vivisection and animal agriculture reveal the cruelty that misleading words legitimize and conceal. Animal Equality leaves no doubt: speciesist abuse relies on euphemism, double-speak, and other linguistic ploys. Offering style and vocabulary guidelines, Animal Equality proposes new language that will bring us closer to nonhuman liberation.
