Norwegian HAS anthology approaching publication

The Norwegian Human-Animal Studies anthology Hvem er villest i landet her? Menneskets forbruk og kontroll av dyr [Who is wildest in this country here? Humans' consumption and control of animals] is approaching publication (scheduled for April). I am editing this book along with Ragnhild Sollund and Guri Larsen, who are both professors of criminology at the University of Oslo. We received preliminary feedback from the publisher, Spartacus forlag/Scandinavian Academic Press, before Christmas and detailed feedback just after New Year. At that stage all chapters were accepted for publication. We re-submitted a slightly revised manuscript (the revision involving all contributors), which now also includes a subject index, this week.

In addition to being one of the editors of this HAS-collection, I contribute with two chapters plus to the introduction. My chapters are called "Hvem er villest i landet her? - Et ulveliv" [Who is wildest in this country here? A wolf's life] and "Menneskeveldet" [The human empire - cf. my English language article The Global Species].
