Tags: HABRI Central Reviews


Interdisciplinary reviews of books and other texts. Multiple studies demonstrate the value of an interdisciplinary approach to understanding complex concepts. At the same time though, our views about a certain subject tend to be influenced by our own experiences and education. The goal of these reviews is to solicit reviews and comments from those in the many areas of expertise that contribute to our understanding of the human-animal bond. In addition to commenting on the reviews, please periodically check HABRI Central for information about the next book up for review and how to get a copy if you’d like to review it yourself.
