Pressestimmen"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 "It is clearly not the authors' objective to preach or judge, but rather to observe the socially constructed view of animals that ultimately sheds brilliant light on the humans who are doing the constructing." --Publishers Weekly
