New Book Review: Andrea Laurent-Simpson discusses Leslie Irvine’s book “Filling the Ark: Animal Welfare in Disasters” #sssi #sociology #animals #society #disaster https://doi.org/10.1002/symb.591 @sociologylens @laurent_simpson @jessicajaustin

In sociology and a range of other social sciences as well as in robotics, there has been a growing interest in people’s behavior toward and treatment of animals. Leslie Irvine is one of the pioneers in sociology and interactionism concerned with human-animal relationships. In 2009 Professor Irvine published her book “Filling the Ark: Animal Welfare in Disasters” in which she critically reflects on the treatment of “non-human animals”. Due to the growth in sociological interest in human-animal relationships “Filling the Ark” has been republished. As the original edition of the book was not reviewed in Symbolic Interaction we now are delighted that Andrea Laurent-Simpson has reviewed the 2021 edition of the book that includes a new preface by Professor Irvine
