Each year, billions of animals are poisoned, dissected, displaced, killed for consumption, or held in captivity to be discarded as soon as their utility to humans has waned. The animal world has never been under greater peril. A broad-ranging collection of essays, this publication contributes to a re-thinking about humans' relation to animals. The book explores the diverse ways in which animals shape the formation of human identity, looking, for example, at the radicalization and gendering of animal images. From questions of identity and subjectivity, it moves to a consideration of the places where people and animmals confront the realities of co-existence on an everyday basis. It then examines the ways in which animals figure in the ongoing globalization of production and mass consumption and, finally, takes up legal and ethical approaches to human-animal relations. The book comples a re-thinking of the history of the relations with animals, and offers a series of proposals for reconstituting the relationship on a progressive basis.
