New Directions in Critical Animal Studies is a comprehensive and wide-ranging transdisciplinary volume that will surely set the standard for years to come. Essays by scholars and activists capture the essence of this ever-growing field. This forward-looking book would be an excellent choice for undergraduate and graduate classes, as well as established academics, who would benefit from learning how to improve human-animal relationships in an increasingly human-dominated world. -- Marc Bekoff, author of The Animals' Agenda: Freedom, Compassion, and Coexistence in the Human Age and Canine Confidential: Why Dogs Do What They Do
In this powerful, pioneering volume, Matsuoka and Sorenson astutely assess the state of Critical Animal Studies and assemble a diverse and interdisciplinary group of scholar/activists who illuminate the path forward toward justice for all humans and other animals. This indispensable work expands critical thinking while charting the activism needed to challenge the systems of power and domination that underlie the intersectional forms of oppression. -- David Nibert, Professor of Sociology, Wittenberg University
This stimulating collection, assembled by renowned scholars, exemplifies the full breadth and maturity of Critical Animal Studies. With authors representing disciplines ranging from archaeology to psychology and employing theoretical frameworks as diverse as analytic philosophy and critical indigenous studies, Critical Animal Studies persuasively demonstrates that questions concerning animals are among the most significant and transformative questions of our age. -- Matthew Calarco, Professor of Philosophy, California State University
This anthology contains evocative and smart essays by talented authors that further our understanding of trans-species social justice. I learned from them all, was stimulated and surprised by a few of the turns the essays took, and argued with a few. All in all a good sign of a robust anthology that contributes to a vital scholarly and activist issue-the status of nonhumans. -- Carol J Adams, author of The Sexual Politics of Meat
