Query: Animals and the State in Modern European History

Dear all, 

I am writing a syllabus for a course on "animals and the state in modern European History" and I am looking for recommended readings on animals and women's movements, animals and communism, and animals in the context of mid 19th century nationalism. If anyone has any recommendations on literature that could contribute to seminar discussion on these topics, please let me know. 

Thank you, 

Alma Igra, Columbia University

But in how far did decolonization across Africa south of the Sahara equally affect the sphere of ecology and relationships between humans and wildlife? Have Africa’s wild animals ever been decolonized?
