  • Being Animalby Anna L. Peterson

    Columbia University Press 2013; US$ 30.99

    If nature is what lies beyond human society, then animals must be a part of it. For most people, animals are the most significant aspects of the nonhuman world. They symbolize nature in our imaginations, in popular media and culture, and in campaigns to preserve the wilderness. They are also real creatures and individual subjects with whom we have... more...

  • Citizen Canineby David Grimm

    PublicAffairs 2014; US$ 16.99

    Dogs are getting lawyers. Cats are getting kidney transplants. Could they one day be fellow citizens? Cats and dogs were once wild animals. Today, they are family members and surrogate children.

  • Committedby Dan Mathews

    Atria Books 2007; US$ 17.99

    Committed is a bold, offbeat, globe-trotting memoir that shows how the most ridiculed punching bag in high school became an internationally renowned crusader for the most downtrodden individuals of all -- animals. This irresistibly entertaining book recounts the random incidents and soul-searching that inspired a reluctant party boy to devote his... more...

    Ashgate Publishing Ltd 2013; US$ 149.95

  • Creatures Like Us?by Lynne Sharpe

    Andrews UK 2015; US$ 20.49

    As a child brought up among animals, Lynne Sharpe never doubted they were essentially 'creatures like us'. It came as a shock to learn that others did not agree. Here she exposes the bizarre way in which many philosophers - including even some great and humane ones - have repeatedly talked and written about animals. They have discussed the... more...
