Corey Wrenn. 2016. A Rational Approach to Animal Rights: Extensions in Abolitionist Theory. Palgrave Macmillan UK.

Applying critical sociological theory, this book explores the shortcomings of popular tactics in animal liberation efforts. Building a case for a scientifically-grounded grassroots approach, it is argued that professionalized advocacy that works in the service of theistic, capitalist, patriarchal institutions will find difficulty achieving success.
