Quarterly Essay 45 Us and Them: On the Importance of Animals


Add your own review!

Overview

For the first time in history, humans sit unchallenged at the top of the food chain. As wilderness loses out to urban sprawl and a vast wave of extinctions gathers force, how has our relationship to animals changed? In this dazzling piece of reportage, Anna Krien investigates the contemporary animal kingdom and our place in it. From pets to food, from wildness to science experiments, Krien also reveals how animals are faring in this new world order. Examples range from the joyful to the deeply unsettling. As Krien delves deeper, she finds that animals can trigger primal emotions in us, which we are often not willing to acknowledge. Us and Them is a clear - eyed look at how we do - and should - treat animals, and an original look at every - thing from animal lawyers to Indonesian abattoirs. It is also a meditation on humanness and animalness, sameness and otherness, that sheds new light on our contemporary obsession with animals.
