Editorial Reviews


"Two pioneers in animal studies―one a major philosopher, the other a groundbreaking Christian theologian―collect in this book a series of literary creations that open door after door to the-more-than-human world. By revealing our astonishingly rich connections with other-than-human animals, this collection demonstrates how the rich universe of literature provides key learning opportunities about animals and our connections to them. It is thus an essential companion to other explorations of animals done through science, religion, law, ethics and studies of other cultures."―Paul Waldau, Religion and Animals Institute, Bob Barker Lecturer on Animal Law at Harvard Law School since 2002, Director of Tufts University's Center for Animals and Public Policy from 2004 through 2008

"A thought-provoking and timely collection that offers a unique entrée into the animal rights debate―one of the most important ethical issues of our day. Linzey and Regan have produced a page-turner that is sure to become popular bedside reading as well as a much-needed text for university and high school literature classes. What could be a more natural context in which to study the relationships between humans and animals than that of good literature?"―Patricia McEachern, Ph.D., Director, Drury University Forum on Animal Rights, and Dorothy Jo Barker Endowed Professor of Animal Rights

"Carefully selected pieces of literature from a wide range of authors offer both an introduction to and a grounding for further work in the area of animals and literature. A beautifully constructed, timely collection."―Laura Hobgood-Oster, author of The Friends We Keep: Unleashing Christianity's Compassion for Animals and Holy Dogs and Asses: Animals in the Christian Tradition

"Two of the world's most important scholars of the human-animal relationship have crafted an original and compelling anthology. It will be of great value to students, teachers, and anyone else who wants to think more clearly, feel more deeply and―hopefully―act with more moral integrity.―,"―Roger S. Gottlieb, author Engaging Voices: Tales of Morality and Meaning in an Age of Global Warming and A Greener Faith: Religious Environmentalism and our Planet's Future

Format: Paperback
This slim volume assembles some of the best bits of writing on animals in English, with excerpts from writers like Stephan Crane, George Orwell, Laurens van der Post, or Alice Walker. Most of the stories are gripping and horribly realistic in depicting animal suffering at human hands. The empathy is often unrestrained, and the result is painful or sickening to read. That is its purpose. The aim is not to reason against cruelty, but to make us sick of it.
