""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."
