"In this book the distinguished political theorist and scholar of social movements Kim Smith turns her attention to animals and how they are, can be, and should be governed in a liberal state. Integrating a wide range of materials, Smith provides an alternative history of the animal protection movement and articulates a distinctive vision for its future."--Dale Jamieson, Director of Environmental Studies and Professor of Philosophy, New York University
"Governing Animals is a truly fine, important piece of work. It relates liberal political theory to nonhuman animal issues in a very creative, insightful manner and provides a cogent, well-documented argument that humans' engagement with other living beings already is reflected in political realities and discussions."--Paul Waldau, Associate Professor of Anthrozoology, Canisius College, and Bob Barker Visiting Associate Professor in Animal Law, Harvard Law School, Spring 2012
"Governing Animals is a smart, readable entry in the growing literature on animals and politics making a political argument for animal welfare. Highly recommended."-- CHOICE
"Zoopolis (OUP) and Governing Animals are both worthwhile exercises of political theory. They raise interesting questions, seek to fill important gaps in our theoretical frames, and advance our conceptions especially in the realm of liberal political thought. They will therefore be of interest at least to scholars who study political theory, moral philosophy, and law. Both works will also be of interest to those beyond the academy. Both are well written, and, while academic and theoretical in orientation, they are readable and accessible." --Tulsa Law Review
