An important collection of essays by the pioneering Oxford Group, emanating from the Cambridge Conference on Animal Rights held at Trinity College, Cambridge in 1977, the first international conference devoted explicitly to animal rights, and a seminal moment in the creation of the modern animal rights movement. An appealing association copy belonging to the writer and campaigner for animal rights and vegetarianism Jon Wynne-Tyson (1924-2020), who contributed an essay to the volume, and whose Centaur Press served as its publisher.
