Summary
An anthology designed to employ the power of fiction to illuminate our moral relationship with animals, Other Nations boasts a collection of writings from writers of great distinction--including Ernest Hemingway, George Orwell, and Alice Walker. By organizing the literary pieces according to the means by which human beings relate to the animals discussed--as companions, as sources of food, as objects of sport and entertainment, and as subjects in scientific research--scholars Tom Regan and Andrew Linzey enable readers to relate these texts (and these animals) to their own experiences and to the manifold issues now discussed in public forums. While the editors believe the time is ripe for radical change in the way human beings see and treat animals, this collection nonetheless presents various and contrary viewpoints, leaving readers to come to their own moral conclusions. --From publisher's description
