Incorporates a clear, approachable style for researchers and practitioners alike, facilitating understanding of the techniques described Features supplementary video content on a companion site, providing practical demonstration of the topics discussed in the work and a useful tool for learning the concepts presented Includes extensive references, increasing the book's utility for serious researchers as well as those who want to implement better handling practices

Since humans first emerged as a distinct species, they have eaten, fought, prayed, and moved with other animals. In this stunningly original and conceptually rich book, historian Alan Mikhail puts the history of human-animal relations at the center of transformations in the Ottoman Empire from the sixteenth to the nineteenth centuries. Mikhail uses the history of the empire's most important province, Egypt, to explain how human interactions with livestock, dogs, and charismatic megafauna changed more in a few centuries than they had for millennia. The human world became one in which animals' social and economic functions were diminished. Without animals, humans had to remake the societies they had built around intimate and cooperative interactions between species. The political and even evolutionary consequences of this separation of people and animals were wrenching and often violent. This book's interspecies histories underscore continuities between the early modern period and the nineteenth century and help to reconcile Ottoman and Arab histories. Further, the book highlights the importance of integrating Ottoman history with issues in animal studies, economic history, early modern history, and environmental history. Carefully crafted and compellingly argued, The Animal in Ottoman Egypt tells the story of the high price humans and animals paid as they entered the modern world.

모든 식품 체계의 목표는 예측 가능한 미래에 인류를 먹여 살리는 것이다. 하지만 저가 식품 체계는 이러한 목표를 성취할 의지가 없다. 그럴 능력 또한 없다. 콜로라도 주립 대학교 사회학과 교수 마이클 캐롤런의 [값싼 음식의 실제 가격]이 출간되었다. 캐롤런은 대학에서 학생들을 가르치며, 농업 정책, 환경, 식품 체계에 대해 활발한 연구 활동을 펼치는 동시에, 일반 독자들을 위한 관련 서적들을 꾸준히 펴내고 있다. 이 책은 우리가 싼값에 음식을 소비할 수 있는 이유가 현행 식품 체계의 비정상성에 있음을 밝힌다. 값싼 음식의 가격표 뒤에 가려져 있는 개인과 집단의 희생을 되짚어 문제의 심각성을 인식하고, 인류의 더 나은 미래와 상생의 길을 위한 대안을 제시하는 것이 저자가 이 책을 쓴 목적이다. 2003년 9월 10일, 전 세계 농민들이 모인 세계 무역 기구WTO 회의장 앞 시위 현장에서 한국의 농민 이경해는 WTO의 농업 정책을 비판하며 스스로 목숨을 끊었다. 그가 들고 있던 팸플릿에는 [WTO가 농민을 죽인다]라는 슬로건과 함께 [덤핑, 급증하는 수입 농작물, 정부 예산의 부족] 등의 문제로 무너져 버린 농민들의 생활과 [국제 곡물 가격이 매우 낮음에도 많은 저개발 국가들에 기아가 만연]한 현실을 고발하는 내용이 적혀 있었다. 캐롤런은 이 사건이 저가 식품 체계에 만연한 불합리성과 그것로부터 예상할 수 있는 비극적 결과를 단적으로 보여 준다고 말한다. 첨예한 찬반 대립 속에서도 저가 식품 체계는 10여 년이 지난 현재까지 지속되고 있다. 이러한 정책을 옹호하는 사람들의 논리는 무엇이고 어떻게 주류로 받아들여졌을까? 그들은 되도록 많은 사람들이 싼값에 음식을 소비할 수 있도록 함으로써, 즉 대량 생산과 효율성에 초점을 맞춤으로써 세계 식량 안보를 지킬 수 있다고 말한다. 지나치게 노동 집약적이고 비효율적인 전통적 소규모 농업은 전 인류를 먹여 살리기에는 발전 가능성이 낮다는 것이다. 따라서 새로운 농업 기술과 정부의 지원 등 구조적 변화가 필요하고, 이를 통해 증가하는 비농업 인구를 먹여 살리고 생산 이익을 도시에 재분배하는 등 공동체의 발전을 도모해야 한다는 것이 그들의 논리다.

Nur einer hochbegabten Autistin wie Temple Grandin konnte es gelingen, das Verhalten von Tieren so genau zu beobachten und zu analysieren, dass sie mehr über sie verstand als die meisten anderen Menschen. Denn Tiere sind uns ähnlich, viel mehr, als wir bislang dachten. Temple Grandin gehört zu den wenigen Autisten, denen es gelang, sich die Welt der Sprache zunutze zu machen, um ihre Welt der Farben, Bilder und Filme anderen zugänglich zu machen. Sie machte eine beispiellose Karriere und gilt heute als eine der weltweit bedeutendsten Tierpsychologinnen. Denn sie kann die Welt so sehen, wie es Tiere tun. Und deshalb kann sie das Verhalten, die Begabungen und Ängste von Tieren verstehen und so den Umgang mit ihnen verbessern helfen. Immer wieder findet Temple Grandin bestätigt, wie sehr ihre eigene Wahrnehmung derjenigen von Tieren ähnelt. In ihrem Bewusstsein und ihrem Gedächtnis sind nur Bilder, die sie für die Außenwelt in Worte übersetzt. Und sie kann Gedanken und Gefühle von Tieren in unsere Sprache übersetzen. Damit revolutioniert sie unser Verständnis von Tieren.

»Ich liebe Würste auch, aber ich esse sie nicht.« Jonathan Safran Foer in der Frankfurter Allgemeinen Sonntagszeitung »Tiere essen« ist ein leidenschaftliches Buch über die Frage, was wir essen und warum. Der hoch gelobte amerikanische Romancier und Bestsellerautor Jonathan Safran Foer hat ein aufrüttelndes Buch über Fleischkonsum und dessen Folgen geschrieben, das weltweit Furore macht und bei uns mit Spannung erwartet wird. Wie viele junge Menschen schwankte Jonathan Safran Foer lange zwischen Fleischgenuss und Vegetarismus hin und her. Als er Vater wurde und er und seine Frau überlegten, wie sie ihr Kind ernähren würden, bekamen seine Fragen eine neue Dringlichkeit: Warum essen wir Tiere? Würden wir sie auch essen, wenn wir wüssten, wo sie herkommen? Foer stürzt sich mit Leib und Seele in sein Thema. Er recherchiert auf eigene Faust, bricht nachts in Tierfarmen ein, konsultiert einschlägige Studien und spricht mit zahlreichen Akteuren und Experten. Vor allem aber geht er der Frage auf den Grund, was Essen für den Menschen bedeutet. Auch Foer kennt die trostspendende Kraft einer fleischhaltigen Lieblingsmahlzeit, die seit Generationen in einer Familie gekocht wird. In einer brillanten Synthese aus Philosophie, Literatur, Wissenschaft und eigenen Undercover-Reportagen bricht Foer in »Tiere essen« eine Lanze für eine bewusste Wahl. Er hinterfragt die Geschichten, die wir uns selbst erzählen, um unser Essverhalten zu rechtfertigen, und die dazu beitragen, dass wir der Wirklichkeit der Massentierhaltung und deren Konsequenzen nicht ins Auge sehen. »Tiere essen« besticht durch eine elegante Sprache, überraschende Denkfiguren und viel Humor. Foer zeigt ein großes Herz für menschliche Schwächen, lässt sich aber in seinem leidenschaftlichen Plädoyer für die Möglichkeiten ethischen Handelns nicht bremsen. Eine unverzichtbare Lektüre für jeden Menschen, der über sich und die Welt – und seinen Platz in ihr – nachdenkt. Mit einem eigens für die deutsche Ausgabe geschriebenen Vorwort von Jonathan Safran Foer. »Diese Geschichte begann nicht als ein Buch. Ich wollte nur wissen – für mich und für meine Familie – was Fleisch eigentlich ist. Wo kommt es her? Wie wird es produziert? Welche Folgen hat unser Fleischkonsum für die Wirtschaft, die Gesellschaft und unsere Umwelt? Gibt es Tiere, die man bedenkenlos essen kann? Gibt es Situationen, in denen der Verzicht auf Fleisch falsch ist? Warum essen wir kein Hundefleisch? Was als persönliche Untersuchung begann, wurde rasch sehr viel mehr als das ...« Jonathan Safran Foer Der Titel enthält eine vom Vegetarierbund Deutschlands (VEBU) zusammengestellte Übersicht zur Sachlage der Massentierhaltung in der Bundesrepublik.
