Reviews

"...I recommend Representing Animals to scholars and others interested in how cultural representations of animals have influenced society and impacted actual animals... the book's cohesive message that the problems of nonhuman animals are very much our problems as well should be counted as a strength and a message that all parties might break bread over." -net
