Review

Dr. Marge DeMello, who is an established authority in the field, has put together an impressive introduction to Human-Animal Studies, synthesizing a great deal of information about a great diversity of topics, and with particularly masterful treatment of the animal rights issue.--Patricia Anderson, Western Illinois University

A 'must' book to own and read. Each chapter is filled with insights extending our understanding of the role and meaning of non-human animals in the modern age. "Animals and Society" is an essential addition to our bookshelves, required readings, citations lists, and textbook adoptions.--Arnold Arluke, Northeastern University

The first published text in human--animal studies, this volume undoubtedly sets the standard. Comprehensive in scope, multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary in approach, painstakingly researched and wonderfully written, it should be the choice for human-animal studies courses in a variety of disciplines. A most impressive accomplishment.--Clifton P. Flynn, University of South Carolina Upstate

Animals and Society is a substantial encyclopedic resource for understanding the nature of our interactions involving animals.--D. Wayne Dworsky"San Francisco Book Review" (01/01/0001)

A well-considered and artfully structured work that provokes thoughtful reflection and stimulates ideas for both theoretical and applied study; it is a worthwhile addition to my library.--Anne McBride"PsycCritiques" (01/01/0001)
