Professor at the University of Illinois at Springfield. I took his class PHI 313 Animals and Human Civilization. The course examines the role of animals in human civilization starting with the "Epic of Gilgamesh." This book examines the treatment, symbolism and role of animals in the Third Reich. Extremely interesting, surprising and well written.
