Summary
"In this book, Rod Preece takes issue with the popular but simplistic view that the Western cultural tradition has encouraged attitudes of domination and exploitation toward the natural world, particularly animals. He contends that the much-maligned Western tradition has far more to commend it than is customarily recognized, and that the much-vaunted Oriental and Aboriginal orientations to animals and nature have habitually been described in a misleadingly rosy hue." "The product of six years of intensive research into comparative religion, literature, philosophy, anthropology, mythology, ethnology, and animal welfare science, Animals and Nature will make fascinating reading for anyone interested in cultural, environmental, and animal welfare issues."--BOOK JACKET
