“Possibly the most important book on animal welfare written to date. In exquisite chapter after chapter Rollin presents the philosophical background of what telos is, why it matters and demonstrates with stories, anecdotes, and data, why common sense is an important basis for understanding animals, their needs and their wants. Rollin has the ability to speak to each reader as if s/he is the only person he is talking to. He is a remarkable talent and brilliant teacher. A great read, a must read.”–Alan Goldberg, Johns Hopkins School of Public Health Founding Director Emeritus of the Center for Alternatives to Animal Testing, Berman Institute of Bioethics

“Johannes Morsink is one of the rare scholars who combines astonishing erudition with an ability to focus on our biggest and most pressing contemporary problems. He has succeeded in creating a universal narrative of global human rights accessible to believers and non-believers alike. The Universal Declaration of Human Rights and the Challenge of Religion is an important, magisterial, timely and highly relevant work for both theorists and practitioners of global politics.”–Anne-Marie Slaughter, President and CEO, New America Foundation
