This new edition of Ecofeminism: Feminist Intersections with Other Animals and the Earth begins with an historical, grounding overview that situates ecofeminist theory and activism within the larger field of ecocriticism and provides a timeline for important publications and events. Throughout the book, authors engage with intersections of gender, sexuality, gender expression, race, disability, and species to address the various ways that sexism, heteronormativity, racism, colonialism, and ableism are informed by and support animal oppression.

This collection is broken down into three separate sections:

—Affect includes contributions from leading theorists and activists on how our emotions and embodiment can and must inform our relationships with the more-than-human world
—Context explores the complexities of appreciating difference and the possibilities of living less violently
—Climate, new to the second edition, provides an overview of our climate crisis as well as the climate for critical discussion and debate about ecofeminist ideas and actions

Drawing on animal studies, environmental studies, feminist/gender studies, and practical ethics, the ecofeminist contributors to this volume stress the need to move beyond binaries and attend to context over universal judgments; spotlight the importance of care as well as justice, emotion as well as reason; and work to undo the logic of domination and its material implications.

«Climate justice requires attention to the historical roots of our environmental crises, and transformative philosophies to help foster liberation, respect for other animals, and a flourishing Earth. The multicultural conversation woven together in this brilliant volume shows why ecofeminist praxis is crucial for understanding the manifold harms of oppression, and nurturing more powerful ethics of resistance, caring, and solidarity.»

Christine J. Cuomo, Professor of Philosophy and Women's and Gender Studies, University of Georgia, U

«With the growing interest in intersectional theories there has been a recent, renewed interest in ecofeminism. This book rises to meet this demand in the form of a collection of essays, which answers the concern of essentialism by embracing a wide range of scholarly voices from the field ... engaging and mind-opening ... a must-read for both feminists and also, no doubt, for meat-eaters.»

Anna Maguire, U.S. Studies Online [on the 1st edition]

«This provocative new anthology is to be warmly welcomed for the diversity of its voices and the breadth of its critical analyses and agenda. Ecofeminism encompasses theory and lived experience at the multiple and sometimes contested intersections of gender identity, disability rights, race, and animal advocacy.»

Martin Rowe, Author of The Polar Bear in the Zoo: A Speculation [on the 1st edition]

«The past three decades or so have seen the publication of a fair number of collections presenting feminist perspectives on human-animal relations. So when coming to a new volume that walks this well-traversed terrain, it's hard not to approach it with the thought that there had really better be something new here. Happily, Ecofeminism delivers the fresh goods. … What the collection as a whole conveys, primarily, is the roots-in-the-dirt entanglement of the various strands of social life with human and nonhuman animals. With animal studies now making the transition from applied ethics to social philosophy, Ecofeminism makes worthy contributions to an emerging and exciting literature.»

Jason Wyckoff, Hypatia: A Journal of Feminist Philosophy [on the 1st edition]

«Carol J. Adams and Lori Gruen are two of the leading scholars in the field of animal studies. This is a pathbreaking book with current, relevant, and important insights for the entire field. It should be required reading for anyone concerned with animals, feminism, or the environment – which is to say, everyone.»

Vasile Stanescu, Associate Professor of Communication Studies & Theatre, Mercer University, USA

«This is a breakthrough collection of updated influential essays in the field and fresh and diverse animal-centered analyses addressing urgent questions of climate, care, and affect. Adams and Gruen have curated a superb text for readers new to ecofeminist thought as well as seasoned scholars.»
