The world’s first anthology designed to employ the power of fiction to illuminate our moral relationship with animals, Other Nations boasts a superb 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 — preeminent 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.
This important anthology consists of original essays that explore issues in environmental ethics. Some of the essays focus mainly on the interplay between the environment and the interests of today’s population while others place considerable importance on our environmental policies and our obligations to generations yet unborn.
This anthology, designed for use in undergraduate courses in environmental ethics, includes new and classic readings by leading writers in the field, full-length case studies, and many short discussion cases. Introductions and discussion questions are provided for all the essays, with each chapter introduced by a summary of the issues and appropriate philosophic, historical and scientific background.
