Book: Bradshaw John «The Animals Among Us»

The Animals Among Us

Серия: "-"

In this highly original and hugely enjoyable work, John Bradshaw examines modern humans'often contradictory relationship with the animal world. Why, despite the apparent irrationality of keeping pets, do half of today's American households, and almost that figure in the UK, have at least one pet (triple the rate of the 1970s)? Then again, why do we care for some animals in our homes, and designate others only as a source of food? Through these and many other questions, one of the world's foremost anthrozoology experts shows that our relationship with animals is nothing less than an intrinsic part of human nature. An affinity for animals drove our evolution and now, without animals around us, we risk losing an essential part of ourselves.

Bradshaw, John

▪ English jurist
born 1602, Stockport, Cheshire, Eng.
died Oct. 31, 1659, London
 president of the court that condemned King Charles I of England to death.

      Bradshaw, the son of a country gentleman, became a lawyer and in 1643 was appointed judge of the sheriff 's court in London. During the early years of the English Civil Wars, he used his legal talents to aid the Parliamentarians' cause. He became chief justice of Chester, Cheshire, in 1647, and in January 1649 the Independents (radical Puritans), who controlled the House of Commons, made him president of the court assembled to try Charles for treason. Charles repeatedly refused to plead, though he sought to have his case heard before Parliament—a request denied by Bradshaw. Charles was convicted and executed (Jan. 30, 1649).

      In March 1649 Bradshaw became president of the Council of State, the executive body of the Commonwealth. Following Oliver Cromwell's establishment of the Protectorate in 1653, Bradshaw openly expressed his dissatisfaction with the new government and retired from politics (1654). In May 1659, following the death of Cromwell and the abdication of Cromwell's son Richard, Bradshaw was again made a member of the Council of State, and in June he became commissioner of the great seal.
