Politics As Usual

Political Animals

Yesterday, writer Natalie Angier published Political Animals (Yes, Animals), a New York Times article about the political behavior of animals. Animal behavior is often used to justify human behavior (a common misuse of animal studies that degrades our perceptions of both humans and animals). But rather than falling into this trap, Angiers simply explains the exciting world of animal politics as a dynamic context for our own, and as a unique perspective on politicking. I absolutely love the accompanying graphic, shown above.

Special thanks to blogger Jared Milrad of Our Common Concern for sharing the link with me.
