  • With Dogs at the Edge of Lifeby Colin Dayan

    Columbia University Press 2015; US$ 29.99

    In this original and provocative book, Colin Dayan tackles head-on the inexhaustible world, at once tender and fierce, of dogs and humans. We follow the tracks of dogs in the bayous of Louisiana, the streets of Istanbul, and the humane societies of the United States, and in the memories and myths of the humans who love them. Dayan reorients our ethical... more...

  • What a Fish Knowsby Jonathan Balcombe

    Farrar, Straus and Giroux 2016; US$ 27.99

    Do fishes think? Do they really have three-second memories? And can they recognize the humans who peer back at them from above the surface of the water? In What a Fish Knows , the myth-busting ethologist Jonathan Balcombe addresses these questions and more, taking us under the sea, through streams and estuaries, and to the other side of the aquarium... more...

  • 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...

  • Speciesism, Painism and Happinessby Richard D. Ryder

    Andrews UK 2015; US$ 10.49

He further... more...

  • Giant Stepsby Richard Peirce

    Penguin Random House South Africa 2016; US$ 10.00

    Elephants have long been targeted by humans: not only are they killed for their ivory, but their extraordinary strength, intelligence and charisma have seen some of them captured, chained and effectively jailed for life. Bully and Induna are two African elephants, both orphaned in organised culling operations and destined for lives in captivity. Growing... more...

  • The Ethics of Killing Animalsby Tatjana Visak; Robert Garner; Peter Singer

    Oxford University Press 2015; US$ 28.99

This volume presents a collection of contributions from major thinkers in ethics and animal welfare, with a special focus on the moral evaluation of killing animals. more...

  • Screening the Nonhumanby Amber E. George; J.L. Schatz; Joseph Anderton; Michael Atkinson; Fernando Pagnoni Berns; Christina Victoria Cedillo; Amber E. George; Stella Hockenhull; Anja H÷ing; am Husemann; Fiona Yuk-wa Law; Matthew Lerberg; CÚsar Marino; Guilherme Nothen; Sean Parson; Jennifer Polish; J.L. Schatz; Carter Soles

    Lexington Books 2016; US$ 84.99

    This collection draws connections between the ways in which animals represented on screen translate into reality. In doing so, it demonstrates that media consumption is not a neutral act but, rather, a political one. The images humans consume have real-world consequences for how animals are treated as actors, as pets, and in nature. The contributors... more...
