Rezensionen
"As one of the founders of this field and someone who has helped to guide its development, DeMello is uniquely situated to write this work. She does an admirable job of detailing the history of Human Animal Studies, its intricate relations to other fields, and its multi/interdisciplinarity... This is the right book at the right time." ¿ Claire Jean Kim, University of California, Irvine
