Description

This study examines the content and structure of 48 children's realistic animal stories for ideological expressions of anthropocentrism. It concludes that the texts send ambivalent and contradictory messages while children's stories may serve to inform the reader about connections to animals.

Contents

The challenge; a caste system for animals; the politics of pets; childhood, liminality, and maturation, techniques of neutralization; the nature-gender nexus.
