'What is an Animal? will interest the general reader who is looking for a thorough review of current thinking on the subject of human/animal differences, similarities, and relationships. The book would also be appropriate for graduate seminars in anthropology, biology, philosophy, and the humanities concerned with animal and human evolution, the manner in which humans have conceptualized animals, what it means to be human, and the ethical treatment of animals' - American Anthropologist
'What is an Animal? ...can only be commended for its interdiciplinary breadth and for the juxtaposition of critical essays written from the perspectives of philosophy and biology, with those of a more anthropological bent' - Journal of the Anthropological Society of Oxford
