A powerful and though-provoking exposé on the meat-eating industry and its emotional and environmental effects. A riveting exposé which presents the gut-wrenching truth about the price paid by the environment, the government, the Third World and the animals themselves in order to put meat on our tables more quickly and conveniently than ever before. Interweaving a variety of monologues and balancing humour and suspense with informed rationalism, Eating Animals is a fascinating, fresh and thought-provoking look at the ethical debate around meat-eating.

"US-centric but worthwhile"
A fierce polemic, probably preaching to the choir, but kudos to the author for trying to be open-minded before slamming it shut in stunned outrage :) its a bit sparse on detail, and is way too america-focussed, but all in all I feel like ive learned quite a bit about something vegetarians and carnivores alike tend to shy away from in equal measurement... How is our meat produced? Is jt cruel? Should we eat it, if we feel we want to? Hypocrisy begins at home, on the dinner table, unless we know what we're eating.
