About this book

There is an urgent need to understand human-animal interactions and relations as we become increasingly aware of our devastating impact on the natural resources needed for the survival of all animal species. This timely reference explores such topics as climate change and biodiversity, the impact of animal domestication and industrial farming on local and global ecosystems, and the impact of human consumption of wild species for food, entertainment, medicine, and social status. Humans and Animals also explores the role of pets in our lives, advocacy movements on behalf of animals, and the role of animals in art and media culture.

Authors Julie Urbanik and Connie L. Johnston introduce the concept of animal geography, present different aspects of human-animal relationships worldwide, and highlight the importance of examining these interconnections. Alphabetical entries illustrate key relationships, concepts, practices, and animal species. Humans and Animals concludes with a comprehensive appendix of select excerpts from key primary source documents relating to animals and a glossary.

Media reviews

"The 'Primary Documents' section includes international laws, books, and documents on the legal and moral treatment of animals and provides a fascinating and comprehensive look into the work being done in the area of animal rights. The inclusion of background material on laws and ethics offers more depth, and readers will find the extensive bibliography an ideal jumping-off point for further research. VERDICT Useful to high schoolers for reports and projects and of interest to adults for general reading."
