"An always engaging, often persuasive mix of the particular and general, leavening and defending the more abstract claims with choice case studies" --Christopher Belshaw, Times Higher Education

"Eloquent and extremely thought-provoking ... astonishingly free of sentimentality while still brimming with passion." --Steve Donoghue, Open Letters Monthly

"deeply serious and brilliantly writtenEL Zoopolis is in fact a courageous book and an intellectual tour de force. It is the most important philosophical work on human-animal relationships since Singer's Animal LiberationEL an inspiration to those people who want to change how humans treat animals" --Richard Keshen, Literary Review of Canada

"It is a novel and accessible (though long) contribution to the literature about the proper relationship between human and non-human animals that is sure to generate new conversations, new ideas, and, potentially, new policies that are more beneficial for everyone."--Our Hen House
