Why our failure to consider the power of animals is to our deep detriment

Ron Broglio will join Changing Hands Bookstore at 7:00 p.m. on Thursday, May 5, for a discussion and signing of his new book, Animal Revolution, moderated by Matt Bell. 

Please pre-register for the event here (limited free registrations available). 

A witty, informative, and captivating work at the juncture of posthumanism, animal studies, phenomenology, and environmental studies, Animal Revolution threads together news accounts (from radioactive boar invading towns to jellyfish disarming battleships) and more in a powerful and timely work of creative, speculative nonfiction that imagines a revolution stirring and asks how humans can be a part of it.

"Might animals be deliberately ‘jamming the anthropological machine’? This is the brilliant question Animal Revolution asks its readers to consider through sly interpretations of destructive animal acts. Readers will enjoy the shrewdness Ron Broglio lends to various animal behaviors, even as his insights inevitably reveal our own shortsightedness and remind us that we are the most invasive and destructive species."—Kari Weil, author of Precarious Partners: Horses and Their Humans in Nineteenth-Century France

"Ron Broglio’s Animal Revolution holds human beings accountable for this myopic, dichotomous approach to animals. There is always something else, or something other, when it comes to the animal. There is no ‘animal’ without the human to name it as such; animals themselves could not care less."—Eugene Thacker, from the Afterword
