An investigation into the dramatic transformation of relationships between humans and animals in the 20th century. Arguing that changing relations with animals can only make sense by relating them to key aspects of social and cultural change, the author discusses issues including: theories of human-animal relations in modernity and postmodernity; zoos, pets and modern cultures; hunting and angling in modernity; and animals in the agricultural and food industries.
