Editorial Reviews for this title:
Synopsis:
Other-than-human animals are an overwhelming presence in our collective and individual lives and, at the same time, are taken for granted by human animals. Scholars have neglected the study of human-animal interaction and the role of animals in society. This is true, despite the fact that animals are an integral part of our lives: in our language, food, families, economy, education, science, and recreation.

In more than thirty essays, Social Creatures examines the role of animals in human society. Collected from a wide range of periodicals and books, these important works of scholarship examine such issues as how animal shelter workers view the pets in their care, why some people hoard animals, animals and women who experience domestic abuse, philosophical and feminist analyses of our moral obligations toward animals, and many other topics.

Social Creatures includes work by Peter Singer, Tom Regan, Carol J. Adams, Josephine Donovan, Barbara Noske, Arnold Arluke, Ken Shapiro, and many leading sociologists, anthropologists, and psychologists. The book also comes with an extensive bibliography of hundreds of articles and books.

Review:
Social Creatures was created to accommodate the need for an anthology in the growing field of Human-Animal Studies. Since its publication, Social Creatures has been adopted at colleges and universities across the US and Canada, including the University of Chicago, William Patterson College, Cape Breton University (Canada), Wofford College, University of Colorado, Rollins College, Texas Christian University, SUNY Buffalo, Central New Mexico Community College, University of Missouri, and Eastern Kentucky University.
