Kimberly K. Smith, Governing Animals: Animal Welfare and the Liberal State (2012). This work of political theory examines the current state of animal welfare in the U.S. through the lens of a discussion of whether or not liberal political policies can adequately address twenty-first century views of companion animals and livestock. In her argument, the author, Kimberly Smith begins with an overview of the historical relationship between Americans and animals and continues through issues of contract, property and representation, ending with proposals for reform.
