In 1976 I became a vegan and since then held leadership positions with some of the world’s foremost animal advocacy organisations in the UK and the USA. Today, I work as an author, independent scholar, and consultant in animal rights.

  • RSPCA Animal Rights Symposium 1977 Trinity College, Cambridge

    August 19, 2018

    In August 1977, Compassion In World Farming’s co-founder, Peter Roberts, took me as his Campaigns Officer to a symposium organised by the RSPCA at Trinity College, Cambridge. This conference, which was called ‘The Rights of Animals’, was my first opportunity to meet and hear from the philosophers Tom Regan (1938-2017) and Stephen Clark, the authors Brigid Brophy (1929-1995) and Ruth Harrison (1920-2000), the campaigners Clive Hollands (1929–1996) and Lord Houghton of Sowerby (1898–1996), the psychologist Richard D.

  • Sue Coe and Henry Salt

    July 15, 2018

    In 2012, I wrote here that Sue Coe is “quite simply, my favourite living artist.” For me, her work sits “proudly along a continuum which includes George Grosz, Otto Dix, Kathe Kollwitz, on the one hand, and El Greco, Thomas Bewick and Goya, on the other.”… Read More

  • Nim Chimpsky by Elizabeth Hess

    March 14, 2010

    If there’s anyone left on the planet who needs convincing that chimpanzees are more like us (or we’re like them) than they’d care to think they need to read Elizabeth Hess’s biography of Nim Chimpsky, the chimpanzee who was taught to communicate in American Sign Language (ASL).… Read More

  • The Old Ways by Robert Macfarlane

    March 20, 2016

    A well-written (except for the weakness to write lists instead of sentences) book about walking which gives the appearance to the reader that you’re getting to know the author when you’re not. I would have liked to have learnt more about Robert Macfarlane and why walking is so important to him.… Read More

  • The Animals’ Vegan Manifesto by Sue Coe

    February 17, 2017

    Often times words are not enough when I consider animal cruelty. Words fail me. No words describe animal exploitation. No words say how I feel. No words could possibly express how I imagine what the animals suffer.… Read More
