Animal Cities builds upon a recent surge of interest about animals in the urban context, bringing together case studies on working and productive animals that lived and died in nineteenth-century cities such as London, Edinburgh and Paris with the argument their presence yields insights into evolving contemporary understandings of the category “urban” and what made a good city. Animal Cities makes a significant contribution to animal studies and it will be of interest to historical geographers, urban, cultural, social and economic historians and historians of policy and planning, finds Karl Baker.
