Peter Singer first became well-known internationally after the publication of Animal
Liberation in 1975. In 2011 Time included Animal Liberation on its "All-TIME" list of the
100 best nonfiction books published in English since the magazine began, in 1923. Singer
has written, co-authored, edited or co-edited more than 50 books, including Practical
Ethics; The Expanding Circle; Rethinking Life and Death; Ethics into Action; The Life You
Can Save; The Most Good You Can Do; and, with Katarzyna de Lazari-Radek, The Point of
View of the Universe. His works have appeared in more than 25 languages.
Peter Singer was born in Melbourne, Australia, in 1946, and educated at the University of
Melbourne and the University of Oxford. After teaching in England, the United States and
Australia, in 1999 he became Ira W. DeCamp Professor of Bioethics in the University
Center for Human Values at Princeton University. Since 2005 he has combined his
Princeton appointment with the position of Laureate Professor at the University of
Melbourne, in the School of Historical and Philosophical Studies. He is married, with three
daughters and four grandchildren. His recreations include hiking and surfing. In 2012 he
was made a Companion of the Order of Australia, the nation's highest civic honour.
