Cover of Animal Revolution by Ron Broglio

As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to linger, many scholars among the Homo sapien variety of animal have found themselves pondering more than usual the relationship between themselves and their non-human counterparts. Broglio’s creative non-fiction book takes a hard look at real-life incidents of animals crossing boundaries between their world and humans'–from reports of radioactive boar invading towns to jellyfish disarming battleships.

The book is available on or from local bookstores.

Ron Broglio is a professor of English at ASU, where he also directs the Desert Humanities Initiative in the Institute for Humanities Research.
