About This Book

One only has to hear the hair-raising cry of a predatory coyote in a suburban backyard to know that humanity's relationship to the animal kingdom has undergone a sea change. From the first caveman to drag home a woolly mammoth carcass to today's confrontational anti-fur street demonstrations, human-animal relations have always been, and continue to be, more intricately entwined than society has comfortably acknowledged. Bulliet, professor of history at Columbia University, contends that this elemental interspecies dynamic has so evolved since the dawn of humanity to now be at a critical turning point. Just as our Victorian-era predecessors could not envision either the disconnect with which modern nonvegetarians acknowledge the source of the meat on their tables nor the extreme humanizing with which contemporary society treats its companion animals, so, too, will future generations view our present social, economic, and philosophical behaviors as equally quaint, self-serving, and, ultimately, destructive. A precisely researched, logically presented, and candidly intriguing apologia for humankind's inconsistent relationship with animals. --Carol Haggas
