Book Title:Sacred cows, Sacred places: Origins and Survivals of Animal Homes in India
Author(s):Lodrick, Deryck O
Publisher Name:University of California Press
Place of Publication:Berkeley, Calif.
Date of Publication:1981
Annotation:Tracing the institution of goshalas and pinjrapoles through history, Lodrick provides case studies demonstrating the Jain, Buddhist, and Hindu understandings of ahimsa that underpin human/animal relations in India. The book contextualizes these institutions of protection and humane treatment of animals in terms of itself and not twentieth-century notions of conservation, resource management, or economic development.
