Some Recent Publications of Note

Brett Mizelle's picture

Here is an admittedly incomplete list of some recent or forthcoming publications that might be of interest to H-Animalistas:

Geoffrey Barstow, Food of Sinful Demons: Meat, Vegetarianism, and the Limits of Buddhism in Tibet (Columbia University Press, 2017):

Mathilde Cohen and Yoriko Otomo, eds., Making Milk: The Past, Present and Future of Our Primary Food (2017, Bloomsbury Academic):

Lindgren Johnson, Race Matters, Animal Matters: Fugitive Humanism in African America, 1840-1930  (Routledge, 2018):

Piers Locke and Jane Buckingham, eds., Conflict, Negotiation, and Coexistence: Rethinking Human-Elephant Relations in South Asia
[Features chapters by anthropologists, biologists, ecologists, geographers, historians, political scientists, and Sanskrit literature specialists. There is also a post on the OUP blog accompanying the book:]

Barbara J. King, Personalities on the Plate: The Lives & Minds of Animals We Eat (University of Chicago Press, 2017):

The British Journal of the History of Science has just published a series of articles on animal agency. I am assuming this will be of interest to the list:

Robert McKay and John Miller (eds.), Werewolves, Wolves and the Gothic (University of Wales Press, 2017):

If you have additional announcements, please send them to me at the email below so I can distribute them periodically. If you could include the press, publication date, and a link to the publisher's website for the book that would save me a bit of trouble.
