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.

In this exciting new e edition, Temple Grandin returns to her groundbreaking work, Animals in Translation, to address the last ten years of developments in behavioral research, animal welfare, and farming regulations. Originally published in 2005, Animals in Translation received unanimous critical praise and was a bestseller in both hardcover and paperback, and Grandin’s Q&A updates this classic text with the most current scientific research. Grandin’s training as an animal scientist and her experience as a person with autism give her a perspective unlike any other expert in the field.

Grandin, standing at the intersection of autism and animal science, offers unparalleled observations and extraordinary ideas, revealing that animals are smarter and more complex than anyone could have imagined.

How can we give animals the best life-- for them? What does an animal need to be happy? In her groundbreaking, best-selling book Animals in Translation, Temple Grandin drew on her own experience with autism as well as her experience as an animal scientist to deliver extraordinary insights into how animals think, act, and feel. Now she builds on those insights to show us how to give our animals the best and happiest life-- on their terms, not ours. Knowing what causes animals physical pain is usually easy, but pinpointing emotional distress is much harder. Drawing on the latest research and her own work, Grandin identifies the core emotional needs of animals and then explains how to fulfill the specific needs of dogs and cats, horses, farm animals, zoo animals, and even wildlife. Whether it’s how to make the healthiest environment for the dog you must leave alone most of the day, how to keep pigs from being bored, or how to know if the lion pacing in the zoo is miserable or just exercising, Grandin teaches us to challenge our assumptions about animal contentment and honor our bond with our fellow creatures. Animals Make Us Human is the culmination of almost thirty years of research, experimentation, and experience. This is essential reading for anyone who’s ever owned, cared for, or simply cared about an animal.

What constitutes animal welfare? With animals being used for companionship, service, research, food, fiber, and by-products, animal welfare is a topic of great interest and importance to society. As the world’s population continues to increase, a major challenge for society is the maintenance of a strong and viable food system, which is linked to the well-being and comfort of food animals. Animal Welfare in Animal Agriculture: Husbandry, Stewardship, and Sustainability in Animal Production explores the pressing issue of farm animal welfare in animal production systems in the United States and globally. A framework for open discussion on animal welfare, this multidisciplinary book brings together the perspectives of 40 highly qualified and recognized experts in their respective fields. Fourteen chapters address a range of topics that includes ethics, sociology, food safety, ecology, feed resources, biotechnology, government regulations, and sustainability, as well as animal comfort, health, and contributions to society. The book also offers a historical perspective on the growth of animal agriculture from family farms to industrial animal agriculture—and the impact this has had on society. Illustrating the diversity of viewpoints, the concept of animal welfare is defined from the perspectives of an ethicist and philosopher, a research scientist, a veterinarian, an industrialist, and an activist, as well as from the perspective of sustainability and product quality. Written primarily for students, but also highly relevant for professionals in varying fields of academia and industry, this timely book reveals important insights into animal welfare and animal agriculture. Unique in its depth, breadth, and balance, it underscores the need for dialogue on wide-ranging and often contentious issues related to animal production systems.

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.
