About the Author

Philip Armstrong is an Associate Professor of English at Canterbury University, New Zealand, and the Co-Director of the New Zealand Centre for Human-Animal Studies. His books include What Animals Mean (2008).


"In Sheep, a superb volume that more than meets the high bar set in the Reaktion Books Animal Series, scholar Philip Armstrong notes that 'no other domestic animal fades from view, even as we use it, quite as completely as the sheep'--before setting this situation to rights. In six chapters with titles such as 'Sheepishness' and 'A Sheep-shaped World, ' each graced with gorgeous illustrations in natural and cultural history ranging from 'The exuberantly polycerate Jacob Sheep' that can have up to six horns to 'Don Quixote's ovine delusion, ' Armstrong produces a sheep manifesto that's both delightful and disturbing."
