"Coming at the non-human from multiple times, places, and methodologies, The Historical Animal captures the vibrancy and promise of history and animal studies. The collection spans the globe and the centuries, bringing together essays on burros and whales, zoos and city streets. Showing off the range and talent of historians working on animals in the past from medieval England to modern Chicago, The Historical Animal stands as the capstone to a new and energetic school of inquiry."—Jon T. Coleman, author of Vicious: Wolves and Men in America

"One of the finest edited collections I have encountered in animal history: fascinating, readable, and accessible. It will be appropriate to use with undergraduates as well as graduate students."—Ann N. Greene, Department of History and Sociology of Science, University of Pennsylvania
