Critical Animal Geographies provides new geographical perspectives on critical animal studies, exploring the spatial, political, and ethical dimensions of animalsa€™ lived experience and human-animal encounter. It works toward a more radical politics and theory directed at the shifting boundary between human and animal. Chapters draw together feminist, political-economic, post-humanist, anarchist, post-colonial, and critical race literatures with original case studies in order to see how efforts by some humans to control and order life a€“ human and not a€“ violate, constrain, and impinge upon others. Central to all chapters is a commitment to grappling with the stakes a€“ violence, death, life, autonomy a€“ of human-animal encounters. Equally, the work in the collection addresses head-on the dominant forces shaping and dependent on these encounters: capitalism, racism, colonialism, and so on. In doing so, the book pushes readers to confront how human-animal relations are mixed up with overlapping axes of power and exploitation, including gender, race, class, and species.Gaard, G 2002, a#39;Vegetarian ecofeminism: A review essay, a#39; Frontiers, vol. ...
