9781566394413: Regarding Animals (Animals, Culture and Society)

What is it about Western society, ask the authors, that makes it possible for people to express great affection for animals as sentient creatures and simultaneously turn a blind eye to the most callous behavior toward them? Animals are sold as expensive commodities, used as food and clothing, killed as vermin and hunted for sport. But they also are treated as members of the family, used as the cause celebre of social movements, and made the subject of art, film and poetry. In this book, the people who work with the animals and live through them talk to the authors about the strategies they adopt to cope with the stress of the job.

From the Publisher:

Questioning our conflicting views of the role of animals

Charles Horton Cooley Book Award, Society for the Study of Symbolic Interaction

From the Inside Flap:

"The ways in which we 'regard' animals have a great deal to do with the ways in which we regard ourselves and the social contexts in which we live, the authors suggest....Each of them has spent considerable time working in shelters, research laboratories, and other institutions where human-animal interactions take place....The book is packed with interesting facts and intriguing insight." —The Bloomsburg Review
