This fascinating collection of essays is oftenchallenging and always engaging.Drawingon an astonishing breadth of approaches this book offers a stimulatingexploration of what it means to be both embodied human and animal in anincreasingly post-human world. From the opening chapter with its provocative idea ofhanding animals tools for their own, much needed, revolution through to thefinal chapter which unsettlingly forces the reader to considerhuman-technological melding, this book will force to you see - and think aboutthe world - differently.--,

This fascinating collection of essays is often challenging and always engaging.Drawing on an astonishing breadth of approaches this book offers a stimulating exploration of what it means to be both embodied human and animal in an increasingly post-human world. From the opening chapter with its provocative idea of handing animals tools for their own, much needed, revolution through to the final chapter which unsettlingly forces the reader to consider human-technological melding, this book will force to you see - and think about the world - differently.--Sanford Lakoff

The chapters in this incisive collection offer important challenges to anthropocentric prejudices - just as the title promises, readers are taken "beyond human." Vivid, passionate, ethically-charged critical writing embodies resistance to fixed ideas that diminish other animals. Boundaries are contested and conventions are transgressed as these writers celebrate a consciousness that displaces man as the measure of all things. This memorable and important compilation of scholarship creatively advances the agenda of human-animal studies.--Sanford Lakoff
