About this book

While much has been written on environmental politics on the one hand, and animal ethics and welfare on the other, animal politics is underexamined. There are key political implications in the increase of animal protection laws, the rights of nature, and political parties dedicated to animals.

Reviews

“This collection of articles is the first edited book attempting to get to grips with it, and because of this it is a welcome addition to the literature. … The editors are to be congratulated, then, on putting together this collection. … All in all, then, this book is a useful first-step in articulating the field of animal politics.” (Robert Garner, Environmental Values, Vol. 25 (4), August, 2016)
