Activist or terrorist?
Back in the early 1990s I had no idea that Best would focus on animal rights, to the point where he is currently banned from entering the UK on grounds of being an "ecoterrorist". I originally came across him through the books on postmodernism he co-authored with Douglas Kellner. Even if Kellner hasn't-- and I as yet don't know-- joined the Critical Animal Studies movement, his past discussions of pedagogy have no doubt influenced the "ecopedagogy" of Richard V Kahn.
