MISHAWAKA, Ind. â€“ Graduate Theological Foundation faculty member Andrew Linzeyâ€™s new book, â€śThe Global Guide to Animal Protection,â€ť will be published by the University of Illinois Press in June 2013. The book is a compendium of more than 180 articles addressing the extent of worldwide human exploitation of animals from a wide array of perspectives.
â€śThe Global Guide to Animal Protectionâ€ť includes disturbing accounts of human cruelty toward animals, as well as inspiring profiles of individuals like primatologist Jane Goodall who have worked to change exploitative practices. It includes a foreword by Archbishop Desmond Tutu.
Linzey is the Henry Bergh Professor of Animal Ethics at the Graduate Theological Foundation, is a member of the Faculty of Theology at the University of Oxford and is the director of the Oxford Centre for Animal Ethics. He is the author or editor of more than 20 books, including â€śAnimal Theology,â€ť â€śAnimals on the Agenda: Questions about Animals for Theology and Ethicsâ€ť and â€śWhy Animal Suffering Matters: Philosophy, Theology, and Practical Ethics.â€ť
Professor Linzey has lectured and broadcast extensively in Europe and the U.S. In 2001, the Archbishop of Canterbury awarded him a Doctor of Divinity degree in recognition of his "unique and massive pioneering work at a scholarly level in the area of the theology of creation with particular reference to the rights and welfare of Godâ€™s sentient creatures."
