In the Company of Animals is an original and very readable study of human attitudes to the natural world.

Animals and Me Book Description :

Did you know that we have the same number of bones in our neck as a giraffe? That dogs can smell 25 times better than us and that sheep need about half as much sleep as we do? There's so much about our bodies that we take for granted, but this amusing, original book takes a completely fresh approach to the human body-by setting it in context within the animal kingdom. Taking each part of the body in turn-our eyes, our nose, our skin-it sets out to explain what each body part is for, and then compares it with other animals. The size of our brain, the strength of our eyesight, our ability to talk, are all looked at in comparison with the animal kingdom as a whole. It is by looking at the bodies of other animals that we can begin to understand our own!...

Animals and Women Book Description :

Animals and Women is a collection of pioneering essays that explores the theoretical connections between feminism and animal defense. Offering a feminist perspective on the status of animals, this unique volume argues persuasively that both the social construction and oppressions of women are inextricably connected to the ways in which we comprehend and abuse other species. Furthermore, it demonstrates that such a focus does not distract from the struggle for women’s rights, but rather contributes to it. This wide-ranging multidisciplinary anthology presents original material from scholars in a variety of fields, as well as a rare, early article by Virginia Woolf. Exploring the leading edge of the species/gender boundary, it addresses such issues a...
