Editorial Reviews

"Overall, Social Lives with Other Animals makes a very useful contribution to the field because, first, its subject-matter – other animals – has largely been ignored theoretically and empirically until now. Cudworth is correct in her claim that sociology (and she could add the social sciences generally) have been resolutely human exclusive. Second, it reviews the existing theoretical literature from wide-ranging disciplines under one roof." - Sociology
