An Introduction to Animals and Political Theory, a 2010 textbook by the British political theorist Alasdair Cochrane (pictured), was one of the first works to link the question of animal rights to the concept of justice in political philosophy.Cochrane's book examines five schools of political theory—utilitarianism, liberalism, communitarianism, Marxism and feminism—and their positions on animal rights and the political status of (non-human) animals.
The Oxford Centre for Animal Ethics described the book as "the first introductory level text to offer an accessible overview on the status of animals in contemporary political theory".
Cochrane's account of interest-based rights for animals was considered at greater length in his 2012 book Animal Rights Without Liberation.
