“Uncaged: Top Activists Share Their Wisdom on Effective Farm Animal Advocacy is a must read for everyone, animal lover or not. I was especially taken by the section written by Dr. Charlotte Laws, PhD. Laws brilliantly points out that there can never be true consideration for nonhuman animals under a democracy that is only run for people, which excludes all living beings, namely animals. In an Omniocracy, a term she coined, nonhuman animals are constituents therein their interests are considered. As an animal lover who’s been involved in animal rescue for the past twenty-eight years, I am thrilled to read what this author has to say in favor of setting up a government that shines a light on animal abuse and advocates to stop it. She gives examples how each of us can make a difference, in practical doable ways. I highly recommend this book to read what she and others who have written here have to say for the betterment of living in harmony and the ending of suffering to our animal brethren.” – Paulette Mahurin, Amazon
“This book is exceptional, and a serious contribution to the public dialogue about factory farming. I found it to be an amazing and well-written strategy course for being an effective change agent that an experienced advocate or newcomer can benefit from. The thoughtful and compelling series of essays at the back in particular really serve to assist in putting the rest of the content in perspective, and in a candid, straightforward way move a reader to look beyond their peripheral vision. I especially appreciated being challenged by these closing essays to think outside the box in questioning some easy to make assumptions, and the sections on practical strategies and resources are a great help indeed.” – Paul Olweean, Amazon
