This anthology, from the literature of sociology and other disciplines as well, examines the various roles that animals play in human societies. It covers a full spectrum of human-animal interaction: pets and companions; animals as sources of food, clothing and labor; animals in captivity; humans and wildlife; animals as research subjects; and animals as objects of recreation and sport. Between the Species represents many of the leading experts in this field, including the authors, who co-edit a scholarly series on animals, society, and culture.About the Author:
