To date, there has been little discussion about the possible connection between animal studies and advocacy on behalf of the welfare and well-being of animals. This volume takes as its aim the discussion of such possible connections -- an important investigation, as the relationship among politics, policy, and advocacy often remains implicit or in the background in much recent work on animal studies. By foregrounding this inquiry, Marianne DeKoven and Michael Lundblad do a great service to readers who might be attracted to this literature's promise or usefulness for various kinds of activism. Likewise, it allows authors and academics interested in animal studies to give further consideration to the possible political implications of work done in this field.
