Animals and War: Confronting the Military-Animal Industrial Complex is the first book to examine how nonhuman animals are used for war by military forces. Each chapter delves deeply into modes of nonhuman animal exploitation: as weapons, test subjects, and transportation, and as casualties of war leading to homelessness, starvation, and death. With leading scholar-activists writing each chapter, this is an important text in the fields of peace studies and critical animal studies. This is a must read for anyone interested in ending war and fostering peace and justice.
In this breakthrough volume, leading animal rights activists and peace anti-war activists shed a crucial light on the important connection between critical animal studies and peace studies. The leading scholar-activists in this volume are at the cutting edge of the struggle to resist the exploitation of nonhuman animals in the military. All social justice educators and activists would do well to read this book!
