By Andrei S. Markovits and Katherine N. Crosby

He is the author and editor of many books, scholarly articles, conference papers, book reviews and newspaper contributions in English and many foreign languages on topics as varied as German and Austrian politics, anti-Semitism, anti-Americanism, social democracy, social movements, the European right and the European left. Markovits has also worked extensively on compara@ve sports culture in Europe and North America. His newest book en@tled “From Property to Family: American Dog Rescue and the Discourse of Compassion” (co-authored with Katherine N. Crosby) represents the culmina@on of his lengthy scholarly (and prac@cal) involvement in the changed human – animal relations that have altered public discourse and behavior in the United States since the late 1960s and early 1970s.

Dr. Markovits has graciously offered host the book lecture at no cost to GRREAT. He also had donated copies of his book as a fundraiser for GRREAT. GRREAT will be offering his book for $20 (below normal book store price) which you can pick up at the event.
