Voices from the Eco-ability Movement
Edited by Anthony J. Nocella, Amber E. George and John Lupinacci
Animals, Disability, and the End of Capitalism: Voices from the Eco-ability Movement is an edited collection of essays from the leaders in the field of eco-ability. Animals, Disability, and the End of Capitalism is rooted in critical pedagogy, inclusive education, and environmental education, and the efforts of diverse disability activists working to weave together the complex diversity and vastly overlooked interconnections among nature, ability, and animals. Eco-ability challenges social constructions, binaries, domination, and normalcy. Animals, Disability, and the End of Capitalism challenges the concept of disability, animal, and nature in relation to human and man. Eco-ability stresses the interdependent relationship among everything and how the effect of one action such as the extinction of a species in Africa can affect the ecosystem in Northern California. Animals, Disability, and the End of Capitalism is timely and offers important critical insight from within the growing movement and the current academic climate for such scholarship. Animals, Disability, and the End of Capitalism shares insights and examples of radical experiences, pedagogical projects, and perspectives shaped by Critical Animal Studies, Critical Environmental Studies, and Critical Disability Studies. Contributing authors include Sarah R. Adams, Marissa Anderson, Judy K.C. Bentley, Mary Fantaske, Ava HaberkornHalm, Hannah Monroe, Nicole Pallotta, Daniel Salomon, and Meneka Thirukkumaran.

Critical Animal Pedagogy and Teaching Against Speciesism
Edited by Anthony J. Nocella, Carolyn Drew, Amber E. George, Sinem Ketenci, John Lupinacci, Ian Purdy and Joe Leeson-Schatz
Education for Total Liberation: Critical Animal Pedagogy and Teaching Against Specisim is an edited collection of essays from the leaders in the field of critical animal pedagogy (CAP). CAP emerges from activist educators teaching critical animal studies and is rooted in critical theory as well as the animal advocacy movement. Critical Animal Studies (CAS) argues for an interdisciplinary approach to understanding our relationships with nonhuman animals. CAS challenges two specific fields of theory: (1) animal studies, rooted in vivisection and testing on animals in the hard sciences and (2) human-animal studies, which reinforces a socially constructed binary between humans and animals and adopts abstract theoretical approaches. In contrast, CAS takes a progressive and committed approach to scholarship and sees the exploitation of nonhuman animals as interrelated with oppression of humans based on class, gender, racism. CAS promotes the liberation of all animals and challenges all systems of domination. Education for Total Liberation is appropriate for undergraduate and graduate level readers (and beyond) who wish to learn from examples of radical pedagogical projects shaped by CAS and Critical Pedagogy. Contributing to this collection are Anne Bell, Anita de Melo, Carolyn Drew, Amber E. George, Karin Gunnarsson Dinker, John Lupinacci, Anthony J. Nocella II, Sean Parson, Helena Pederson, Ian Purdy, Constance Russell, JL Schatz, William E. Shanahan III, Meneka Thirukkumaran, and Richard J, White.
