9780739186510: Animals and War: Confronting the Military-Animal Industrial Complex (Critical Animal Studies and Theory)

Animals and War: Confronting the Military-Animal Industrial Complex is the first book to examine how nonhuman animals are used for war by military forces. Each chapter delves deeply into modes of nonhuman animal exploitation: as weapons, test subjects, and transportation, and as casualties of war leading to homelessness, starvation, and death. With leading scholar-activists writing each chapter, this is an important text in the fields of peace studies and critical animal studies. This is a must read for anyone interested in ending war and fostering peace and justice.

Review:

In this breakthrough volume, leading animal rights activists and peace anti-war activists shed a crucial light on the important connection between critical animal studies and peace studies. The leading scholar-activists in this volume are at the cutting edge of the struggle to resist the exploitation of nonhuman animals in the military. All social justice educators and activists would do well to read this book! (Peter McLaren, Honorary Chair Professor and Director of the Center for Critical Studies, Northeast Normal University, China)

In a world that has seemed to value things over life/people, this book brings to the public’s notice the often unheard voice of animal—animals who are treated in inhumane ways just to continue the war machine. This book gives us a much-needed insight into an area of study rarely gone. Animals and War is the premier reader for animal studies and violence. (Daniel White Hodge, North Park University, Chicago and author of "The Soul Of Hip Hop: Rimbs, Timbs, & A Cultural Theology")

Animals and War is an eye-opening exploration of the profoundly destructive consequences of human chauvinism on nonhuman populations, and indeed the entire planet. This book is extraordinary in its theoretical depth and breadth, and in its engagement with the material reality of systematized death dealing and suffering, and yet it manages to inspire both hope and action. (David Naguib Pellow, University of California Santa Barbara, author of Total Liberation: The Power and Promise of Animal Rights and the Radical Earth Movement)

Animals and War offers a holistic and in-depth analysis of the important social and military contributions nonhuman animals play, a contribution all too frequently born in blood and exploitation. This book represents the best of the emerging literature and facilitates new strides in critical animal studies and peace studies. (Jason J. Campbell, Institute for Genocide Awareness and Applied Research)

One day, thanks in part to books like these, we will stop saying, 'Let’s respect each other, for we are all human beings' and say, 'Let’s respect each other, for we are all living beings. Peace begins at breakfast with what’s on our plates.' (Ingrid Newkirk, president, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA))

Animals and War is a wonderfully original contribution to the world of activism, social justice, and peace studies. An enlightening read for everyone! (Jason Del Gandio, author of "Rhetoric for Radicals: A Handbook for 21st Century Activists")

Animals and War is a seminal book for those who oppose war, those who fight for animal liberation, and those who do both. This essay collection powerfully exposes the use of animals as unwitting instruments and casualties of the battles that humans continue to wage against each other. Animals and War demands that all give attention to the ways in which manifestations of abuse, exploitation and domination are interwoven during war time, and it serves as a much needed rallying cry to put a cog in the machine that is the military-animal industrial complex. (Kim Socha, author of "Women, Destruction and the Avant-Garde: A Paradigm for Animal Liberation")

Animals and War takes us beyond critical theory's usual concerns about war, amplifying our understanding—and our concerns—about human suffering to appreciate the impact on other animals of this most human, most destructive of practices. (Toby Miller, New York University)

Given the awful destructiveness of war, it is all too easy to think that its horrors are limited to its effect on human beings. This book makes the much-needed point that animals, too, have been both 'instruments' of war and its victims, a trend that threatens to continue, even in our highly technological age. An important contribution to a previously neglected arena. (David P. Barash, editor of Approaches to Peace: A Reader in Peace Studies)

Discarding the anthropocentrism inherent to conventional antimilitarist analyses, Animals and War exposes the very bedrock upon which the reality of contemporary militarism has been constructed. As the contributors amply demonstrate, the lives of 'lesser' species have been so utterly devalued in the name of tactical utility that, inevitably, the same degree of devaluation would be applied not only to 'lesser' races, nations, and peoples, but ultimately to all forms of life. For anyone wishing to understand the thanatophoric nature of the societal dynamic we now confront, the connections made in this book are of profound importance. (Ward Churchill, author of "A Little Matter of Genocide")
