   schema:description ""With the rise of China comes the potential retreat and demise of some animal species. In recent years, with the growing awareness of animal issues in China, animal cruelty and animal protection have been attracting more attention and generating public debates. Animals in China: Law and society examines the laws and regulatory framework for animal protection in contemporary China in its social and cultural contexts, and is the first comprehensive research monograph on the subject. It covers key areas of the debate including wildlife, companion animals, fur animals, lab animals and other working animals. It is shown that despite the importance of animals in Chinese culture, animal suffering has not been a topic of general concern. However, this is beginning to change. Here, Cao documents the nascent animal protection movement in China as a bottom-up grass-roots movement which has gained traction via the internet and social media"--Unedited summary from book cover."@en ;
