Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

1 Citation (Scopus)


This introductory chapter reviews the historiography of the nineteenth-century British animal protection movement. Appraising the limitations and strengths of previous scholarship and wider developments in related fields, I explain the influences that informed the book and the reasoning behind my new approach. It brings to the fore the movement’s mediating power and creative agency in relation to the traditions surrounding it, and reconstitutes its proper historical role as an agent for change.
