Opis produktu

This original and insightful book explores how horses can be considered as social actors within shared interspecies networks. It examines what we know about how horses understand us and how we perceive them as well as the implications of actively recognising other animals as actors within shared social lives. This book explores how interspecies relationships work using a variety of examples to demonstrate how horses and people build social lives. Considering horses as social actors presents new possibilities for improving the quality of animal lives the human condition and humanhorse relations.Contents DedicationIntroductionPart One: Introducing HorseHuman RelationshipsChapter One: Equine cotravellersChapter Two: Animals as social actors: Relations action and agencyPart Two: Thinking Horses: How Humans Set the ContextChapter Three: Natural HorsesChapter Four: Symbolic HorsesChapter Five: Equestrian CulturesPart Three: Meeting Horses: Moving TogetherChapter Six: ChoreographiesChapter Seven: Moving with MotivePart Four: Acting on Equine AgencyChapter Eight: Agency MattersChapter Nine: Agency Action and Horses: Unstable Relations BibliographyLynda Birke is Visiting Professor in Biological Sciences at the University of Chester UK.
