BooknewsThe Scottish-born John Oswald, a British soldier and journalist who advocated revolution on both sides of the English Channel, wrote this 1791 treatise less to condemn individuals for their treatment of animals than to outline his vision of freedom for all creatures, including the underclass of the nascent system of capitalism. The work's contemporary editor, Jason Hribal, is currently researching the history of animals while pursuing a PhD in history at the U. of Toledo. The work is not indexed. Annotation c.

The Cry of Nature is an essential book for anyone who has an interest in animal liberation. More than this, the book is indispensable for those who hope for freedom for all creatures. We owe a debt of gratitude for its republishing.
