(p.1) Introduction
Animal Labor and Colonial Warfare

James L. Hevia

University of Chicago Press

The introduction situates the book in relation to animal studies, recent work on animal-human codependency, animal cruelty legislations in Great Britain, and constructive colonialism in which an animal management regime headed by tropical veterinary surgeons was inaugurated in India. It raises question about how we think about animal-human relations in these contexts and whether there might have been different perceptions in colonies as opposed to the imperial metropole about such relations. It then notes that London's "Animals in War" memorial contains no reference to the native animal handlers, nor to colonialism. The introduction concludes with an overview of the structure of the book

Keywords:   Animals in War memorial, animal studies, veterinary medicine, animal handlers, sarwans
