For many people "animal rights" suggests campaigns against factory farms, vivisection or other aspects of our woeful treatment of animals. Zoopolis moves beyond this familiar terrain, focusing not on what we must stop doing to animals, but on how we can establish positive and just relationships with different types of animals.

Ruth Abbey, Philosophy in Review In this careful, thoughtful, and engaging work, Sue Donaldson and Will Kymlicka affirm and extend the attribution of rights to animals. ... The book is thoroughly researched and engages a lot of literature about animals, both philosophical and sociological

Samuel Hawke, Social Justice First it reinvigorated my view of animal rights and political theory, presenting a compelling, if pretty utopian, picture of just and egalitarian animal-human relations. More importantly, perhaps, it better illuminated my own understanding of my relationship with animals close to me, Mortimer (dog) and Tadpole (cat).

Jean Kazez, Philosophy blog This is the book that everyone in animal ethics ought to be talking about... extremely well written and carefully argued, and stuffed with fascinating observations about humans, animals and the relations between them... Dream novel: Margaret Atwood reads Zoopolis and creates a fictional world like that.

Nina Varsava, Humanimalia Volume 4 Zoopolis presents a meticulously principled, thorough- and maybe, hopefully, even realistic - theory, which in many ways improves upon preexisting theories of animal rights.

Steve Cooke, Global Policy Donaldson and Kymlicka's contribution builds upon attempts by others to extend justice to non-human animals in an original and compelling manner. They convincingly demonstrate that theories of animal rights lacking a political component are inadequate, and that traditional citizenship theory wrongly excludes many potential coauthors in the destiny of democratic communities.

Daniel Hutton Ferris, Politics inSpires.org will take the debate about the limits of liberal citizenship into radical new areas.. Zoopolis breaks new ground by looking at animal rights from a genuinely political perspective. It's deliciously contentious thesis will force liberal political theorists to look much harder at the boundaries of citizenship.

Marta Tafalla, Dinoia, Volume LVII Zoopolis is an amazing book, which proposes to reframe the debate on our relationship with animals in a new theoretical framework.

Tr istan Rogers, The Value Enquiry a remarkable landmark in the animal rights debate. Like what Nozick said of Rawlss A Theory of Justice, it would seem that animal rights theorists must either work within the theory put forward by Zoopolis or explain why not.

Alasdair Cochrane, The Philosophers Magazine fascinating and path-breaking. There is a huge amount to commend in this rich and novel theory... Zoopolis is a major contribution to both animal ethics and political philosophy, and will provide much interesting debate.

Steve Donoghue, Open Letters Monthly eloquent and extremely thought-provoking astonishingly free of sentimentality while still brimming with passion Books like this - meticulously thought-out, very attractively reasoned, with no hint of screed - do inestimable good in their incremental way, a...
