Review Text

"Animals in China: Law and Society has the unusual quality of being both a monograph on animal law in China and a brilliant guide to the changing fortunes of nonhuman animals in the rapidly developing China. ... The work should be of interest not only to both the animal-concerned scholarly community and the general public, but also essential reading for all those who are prepared to think about and work for the animal issue at the much-needed global level." (Chien-Hui Li, Journal of Animal Ethics, Vol. 7 (1), 2017)
