‘Other Nations: Animals in Modern Literature’, edited by Tom Regan and Andrew Linzey, is the world’s first anthology designed to employ the power of fiction to illuminate our moral relationship with animals.

Other Nations includes the writing of such well-known authors as Ernest Hemingway, George Orwell, and Alice Walker.

Organizing the literary pieces according to the means by which human beings relate to the non-human animals discussed—as companions, as sources of food, as objects of sport and entertainment, and as subjects in scientific research— enables readers to relate these texts (and these non-human animals) to their own experiences and to the manifold issues now discussed in public forums.
