Meat Markets

The Cultural History of Bloody London

Ted Geier

Published by Edinburgh University Press

  • Articulates the emergent 'nonhuman thought' developed across literatures of the long nineteenth century and inflecting recent critical theories of abject life and animality.
  • Shows the productive contradictions in social and animal concern as it produces anonymous, 'biopolitical' objects in literature, food culture, and London society.
  • Presents important connections between meat and popular serial press industries, the intersections of criminals and public readership, and the long history of bloody spectacle at London's Smithfield Market.
