Edinburgh Companion to Animal Studies

"From A-Z, this book is full of astute companion writers and scholars entangled in rich webs with the lives and deaths of animals, in story, evolution, politics, science fiction, religion, ethics, queer theory, performance, ordinary living, and more. Here is a book that takes seriously the unanswerable but necessary question that gives the Afterword its title, 'Who are these animals I am following?' Follow, read, and emerge in the compost that is always more than human."
