The End of Captivity?
A Primate’s Reflections on Zoos, Conservation, and Christian Ethics
Imprint: Cascade Books
"A warm-hearted and sensible look at the reasons for and against keeping animals captive in zoos, parks or sanctuaries, and the reasons against keeping them in factory farms in which those who speak out against zoos and the like are challenged to consider their own involvement in far worse forms of captivity. York is an intelligent and compassionate friend of the animals involved, and of their human keepers."
--Stephen R. L. Clark, Emeritus Professor of Philosophy, University of Liverpool; Honorary Research Fellow, Department of Theology, University of Bristol; Associate Editor, British Journal for the History of Philosophy
"As we face what is being called the Sixth Mass Extinction, the topic of captivity is becoming ever more pressing. In this thoughtful--and what will undoubtedly be considered controversial--book, York explores the complexities of holding others captive. In a world where 'it is no longer clear where any of us belong,' this exploration is paramount."
