About the Author

Norm Phelps was the spiritual outreach director of The Fund for Animals, as well as a founding member of the Society of Ethical and Religious Vegetarians (SERV) and a contributing writer for Satya. His goal was for faith communities of all traditions to include animals within the scope of their compassionate ministries. Norm Phelps's books include The Dominion of Love, The Great Compassion and The Longest Struggle. Norm passed away in the end of 2014.


Laying the groundwork for this penetrating and thoroughly engaging survey of animal advocacy, Norm Phelps begins with the dawn of civilization, when humans began to enslave animals for food, clothing, sport, and sacrifice. We witness millenia of profound abuse before any real advance is made in the interest of animals, though a few early voices of reason appear; Jesus, for example, may have been history's first animal liberator. The Longest Struggle is a lively account of the evolution of animal protection, revealing how the movement has grown from the ideas of a few ancient philosophers to become an influential force in modern society. If you're looking for a comprehensive discussion on animal advocacy--including its origins, strategies, and controversies--look no further.-- (10/24/2007)
