The Animals Reader: The Essential Classic and Contemporary Writings by Linda Kalof

The study of animals - and the relationship between humans and other animals - is now one of the most fiercely debated topics in contemporary science and culture. Animals have a long history in human society, providing food, labour, sport and companionship as well as becoming objects for exhibit. More contemporary uses extend to animals as therapy and in scientific testing. As natural habitats continue to be destroyed, the rights of animals to co-exist on the planet - and their symbolic power as a connection between humans and the natural world - are ever more hotly contested. The Animals Reader brings together the key classic and contemporary writings from Philosophy, Ethics, Sociology, Cultural Studies, Anthropology, Environmental Studies, History, Law and Science. As the first book of its kind, The Animals Reader provides a framework for understanding the current state of the multidisciplinary field of animal studies. This anthology will be invaluable for students across the Humanities and Social Sciences as well as for general readers.

About this book

Edited by Linda Kalof and Amy Fitzgerald. Oxford: Berg, ISBN: paperback. Compiling a reader is a difficult task. No choice of authors, articles, editing, and order of running can possibly hope to please all the people, all the time. The authors of this reader face an additional problem: contributors to animal studies come from a variety of disciplines and adopt theoretical approaches that are widely divergent and even, at times, incompatible. The question is, "how does one provide worthwhile material to such a divergent cohort?
