The introduction provides focus and intent for the book: focusing on core religious teachings that explain how human beings ought to behave in relation to other animals—teachings that shed light on animal welfare, animal rights, and animal liberation—with the intent that this information be considered in light of contemporary practices and consumer choices. The introduction closes with an explanation of language and social justice activism, introducing the term “anymal.”
