              In Love Notes, a collection of articles, essays, and presentations, Philip McKibbin introduces the Politics of Love and explores the possibilities of this emerging theory. The Politics of Love affirms the importance of love and reimagines our relationships: to ourselves, each oth...er, non-human animals, and the natural environment. This love is inclusive, critical, generous, and constructive. Instead of a politics of fear and distrust, of separation and narrow-mindedness, the Politics of Love presents a new vision that extends beyond individuals, families, the nation state, and even human beings: it is love that will bring about justice for other species, and it may also enable us to address climate change. This book presents an intellectual journey; it charts a course for the future, and invites you to help take the Politics of Love forward.

              Pit Bull Flower Power
               

              Pit Bull Flower Power (Hardback)

              By Gamand, Sophie

              For decades, pit bulls have been demonized by society and portrayed as hellhounds. They've become the most feared, hated, and abused of all companion animals. Some cities and even entire countries ban them, while the media persist in associating them with viciousness. This unjust... reputation has sealed the fate of millions of dogs, who face prejudice around the world and languish in shelters, where they are the most euthanized. In America alone, hundreds of thousands of pit bulls are put to sleep every year. Since 2014, French photographer Sophie Gamand has been composing portraits of adoptable pit bulls from more than thirty shelters and rescues throughout the United States. Many had been waiting for years for a home. Adorning her models with handmade flower-crowns, Gamand tells each dog's story and celebrates their inherent personality, vulnerability, and individuality. Posted and shared widely on social media, the portraits--at once charming, candid, and deeply affecting--have not only led to hundreds of dogs finding loving, forever homes, but have also spurred efforts to destigmatize an animal whose reputation for violence says more about us than it does the character of the dogs themselves. Full of moving, honest, and inspiring stories of individual dogs and their lives (and deaths), Pit Bull Flower Power presents a vivid, beautifully composed cross-section of Gamand's extraordinary work. The book also serves as a testament to the caring people who work in animal rescue, the passion and dedication of those who provide homes for these animals, and the dignity, forbearance, and love of these dogs, who are at the mercy of humans.

              As human beings, we enter this world with nothing and leave with nothing. Between our birth and death, our life presents us with manifold opportunities and great challenges. According to best-selling author and spiritual teacher, Ryuho Okawa, we can either be attached to acquirin...g possessions and material goods, or we can seek the true path of happiness paved by a love that gives rather than receives, that welcomes light rather than darkness and which emulates the lives and qualities of great people who have lived with integrity, wisdom, and courage. In The Starting Point of Happiness, Okawa beautifully illustrates how we can attain happiness and live a purposeful life. He counsels spiritual seekers to be strong when difficulties occur, to respect and love others, and to be in tune with the will of the universe. By doing this, we are walking on the path of happiness.

              Polar Bear in the Zoo: A Speculation

              In THE POLAR BEAR IN THE ZOO, Martin Rowe studies a photograph by the Canadian photojournalist Jo-Anne McArthur in the context of her series 'We Animals' and the portraits of several other photographers of captive animals. Rowe looks at how we come to the window to stare at the c...reatures and the ways we frame our ideas about them within the exposure and capture provided by the photograph and the zoo. As part of his analysis, Rowe relates his own frames as an animal activist, his blind spots and effacements and how the various tropes that are evoked in McArthur's photograph reflect our human tendency to honour the act of seeing-including our beliefs in the epiphanic-above our other senses and our willingness to confront what we see or turn away.
