Alissa Quart's book, "Republic of Outsiders: The Power of Amateurs, Dreamers, and Rebels," makes the case for a more expansive definition of outsiders. A definition that includes the people Quart writes about -- everyone from indie filmmakers and musicians to trasngender activists and bi-polar pride supporters.



I'm trying to understand how the term "non-human animal" is supposed to affect the average person's thinking. It seems that the "non-human" part of the label overrides everything else and would actually reduce a person's sympathy for animals, as in "It's not human, so I don't have to care about it." Perhaps a term like "animal being" or even "co-animal" would give someone pause.

How can I buy this book. Is it available on portal like amazon , ebay etc .

I am so delighted to be here and to read this perfect post. Thanks for share this with us. |
