Animals & Ethics 101 is not really an "argumentative" book, in that no positions on the issues are argued for or advocated. Here are some of his recent argumentative publications, however (and more are here):

He is currently at work on a (text)book entitled Making Moral Progress: A Moral Arguments WorkbookThis book evaluates moral arguments using basic formal logic and starts with "everyday arguments," what people often say about the issues, before moving on to arguments  developed by philosophers. The book will be useful for a variety of audiences and contexts. Like this book, it will be an open access book, freely available to all electronically, as well as a low-cost paperback.
