2012-09-26 - Swag from Columbia U - 0019

A belated shout-out* to the nice people at Columbia University Press, who sent me copies of two of their latest animal-related titles: Animal Rights Without Liberation: Applied Ethics and Human Obligations by Alasdair Cochrane and Animals and Society: An Introduction to Human-Animal Studies by Margo DeMello, both of which came out in August.

I’m especially excited about Animals and Society, which is an introductory human-animal studies reader – a textbook – the first of its kind! Totally up my alley; I can’t tell you how much I wish my college had offered a HAS course or two back when I attended in the late ’90s/early aughts. (A quick perusal of their website shows that they STILL don’t offer any such courses. Boo! Hiss! Boo!)

Here’s some info about the author and book, via Amazon:
