Speaker's Forum Bibliography


Animal Law Bibliography

The following books are recommended by our Speaker’s Forum December 2010 guest, Animal Law Attorney Yolanda Eisenstein. They cover a variety of animal-related topics, including the basics, ethics, factory farming, animals used in scientific research, and more.

**Indicates those publications Ms. Eisenstein cited as particularly helpful for studying the opposing concepts of “charity” (Scully), and “justice” (Nussbaum) in our relationship with animals.
