Review:

A marvellous piece of research, this book will help those interested in animals learn about Islam, and those familiar with Islam probe into the animal realm." (Christopher Key Chapple - Professor of theological Studies, Loyola Marymount University)

"No work does so much to bring the reader abreast of human-animal relations in the Muslim world, or does so with such a combination of scholarship, sympathy, and bold critique." (Richard Bulliet - Professor of History, Columbia University; author of The Camel and the Wheel)

"A marvellous piece of research, this book will help those interested in animals learn about Islam, and those familiar with Islam probe into the animal realm." (Christopher Key Chapple - Professor of theological Studies, Loyola Marymount University)

From the Back Cover:

From references to animals in the Qu’ran to modern-day websites on Islamic vegetarianism, Richard C. Foltz presents the first comprehensive study of the role of animals in the Islamic tradition. Drawing on a wide range of sources, including classic mysticism, Foltz traces the development of Islamic attitudes towards animals over the centuries and confronts the key ethical questions facing Muslims today.

Modern advances in science and technology and the increasing prevalence of techniques such as bioengineering and factory farming have forced many religions to reassess their traditional notions of animal rights and, as Foltz demonstrates, Muslims are increasingly asking their tradition to respond to such issues.

Scholarly yet accessible, this is an original and informative contribution to Islamic studies, and will be essential reading for anyone, Muslim or non-Muslim, with an interest in the significance of religion and culture for the contemporary animal rights debate.
