Summary Read First Chapter image missing

Examines how the animal/human divide has influenced power dynamics.

The division of life into animal and human is one of the fundamental schisms found within political societies. Ironically, given the immense influence of the animal/human divide, especially upon power dynamics, the discipline in charge of theorizing and studying power—political science and theory—has had little to say about the animal/human. This book seeks to amend this vast oversight. Acknowledging the complexity of the changing differences between animals and humans, the contributors explore such topics as Marx, Freud, the animal, and civilization; dog breeding, racism, and democracy; the meaningful silences of animals; how sovereignty reconfigures the animal/human; and the paradoxical struggles against being dehumanized among immigrant workers in a slaughterhouse. Political Theory and the Animal/Human Relationship is necessary reading for anyone who wants to understand how power has been influenced by the animal/human divide, and what we can do about it.

Judith Grant is Professor of Political Science at Ohio University and the author of Fundamental Feminism: Contesting the Core Concepts of Feminist Theory. Vincent G. Jungkunz is Associate Professor of Political Science at Ohio University.
