Description
In 2009, ecologist and evolutionary biologist Marc Bekoff was asked to write on animal emotions for Psychology Today. Some 500 popular essays later, the field of anthrozoology—the study of human-animal relationships—has grown exponentially, with substantive data demonstrating broad evidence of nonhuman intelligence and emotional responses. In this updated sequel to The Emotional Lives of Animals, Bekoff offers selected essays that showcase the fascinating cognitive abilities of other animals as well as their empathy, compassion, grief, humor, joy, and love. Humpback whales protect gray whales from orca attacks; combat dogs and other animals suffer from PTSD; and chickens, rats, and mice overtly display empathy. This new collection is a call to begin the necessary work of "rewilding" ourselves and changing the way we treat other animals.

"Marc Bekoff's breadth of knowledge about animal behavior is staggering. Bravo to Bekoff for making it so enjoyable to learn about the cognitive, emotional, and moral lives of the animals with whom we share our homes and our magnificent planet."—Brian Hare & Vanessa Woods
