This remarkable book brings together leading international specialists: detailing their most recent discoveries in the animal kingdom, they encourage us to realise that animals truly are beings that possess sensitivity, intelligence and empathy. The first part of the book introduces us to THE GENIUS OF ANIMALS, their emotions, morality, sense of solidarity, cultures and traditions, sensitivity and the way in which they communicate. The second part, MAN AND ANIMALS, A SHARED WORLD, offers profound reflection on how we should reconsider our relationship with animals, but also the rights which we should afford them and the resulting responsibilities that implies on our part.
