With the rise of China comes the potential retreat and demise of some animal species. In recent years, with the growing awareness of animal issues in China, animal cruelty and animal protection have been attracting more attention and generating public debates. Animals in China: Law and Society examines the laws and regulatory framework for animal protection in contemporary China in its social and cultural contexts, and is the first comprehensive research monograph on the subject. It covers all key areas of the debate including wildlife, companion animals, fur animals, lab animals and other working animals. It is shown that despite the importance of animals in Chinese culture, animal suffering has not been a topic of general concern, often dismissed as being bourgeois or frivolous. However, this is beginning to change. Here, Cao documents that animal protection in China is a nascent social movement, with attitudes slowly changing through a bottom-up, grass-roots campaign which has gained traction via the internet and social media.

About the Author:

Deborah Cao is a professor at Griffith University, Australia. She is a scholar of animal law, legal language, legal translation and Chinese law and legal culture. She is also active in social media in China and writes about Chinese culture, society and animals, and was named one of the 200 most influential bloggers in China in 2012.

Review:

“Animals in China: Law and Society has the unusual quality of being both a monograph on animal law in China and a brilliant guide to the changing fortunes of nonhuman animals in the rapidly developing China. ... The work should be of interest not only to both the animal-concerned scholarly community and the general public, but also essential reading for all those who are prepared to think about and work for the animal issue at the much-needed global level.” (Chien-Hui Li, Journal of Animal Ethics, Vol. 7 (1), 2017)

Book Description Palgrave Macmillan. Hardcover. Condition: New. 208 pages. With the rise of China comes the demise and retreat of many animal species in China and far flung places. Animals in China: Law and Society examines the laws and regulatory framework for animal protection in contemporary China in its social and cultural contexts, covering wildlife, companion animals, lab animals and other working animals and documenting the nascent animal activism as a social movement in China. It is the first comprehensive research monograph on animal law in China written in English or Chinese. Just as China is called the world factory for manufactured goods, it is also a world factory for manufactured animal cruelty as regards lab animals, fur animals and endangered wildlife in a new phenomenon of globalized animal cruelty. Despite the importance of animals in Chinese culture, animal suffering is not a topic of general concern. People who are concerned about animal suffering or assist animals are often dismissed as being bourgeois or frivolous, but this is changing in a grass-roots animal protection movement with the advent of the internet and social media.
