His book Animal Liberation, first published in 1975, has been credited with triggering the modern animal rights movement. His other books include Practical Ethics, The Expanding Circle, Rethinking Life and Death, The Life You Can Save, One World Now, Ethics in the Real World, and The Point of View of the Universe (co-authored with Katarzyna de Lazari-Radek). Peter Singer has been described as the most controversial and influential philosopher alive today. In 2012 he was made a Companion of the Order of Australia, the nation’s highest civic honor.
