Review

... A book with great cross-disciplinary appeal. Highly recommended.

(CHOICE)

Review

This book is poised to fill a very specific gap in the literature and will therefore be of great service to environmental studies.

(John Martin Gillroy, director, Environmental Policy Design Programs, Lehigh University)

11 of 11 people found the following review helpful By Corey Wrenn on May 7, 2013
Format: Paperback
Nibert's books are a must own for any animal rights scholar. Nibert applies sociological theory in a compelling way, really challenging that which we all take for granted: that nonhuman animal use is good or healthy for us. This book argues that all oppression is linked and exploitation hurts us all. Unlike many other animal rights books, Nibert unapologetically critiques "happy meat" (humanely raised, cage-free, green-washed animal products) and argues for the moral imperative in veganism.

This book offers a relentless look at how a divergent strain within our species has utilized animals to aid in their domination and outright destruction of other human beings. I'm no academic but Mr. Nibert appears to have been very thorough in his historical research. I've had to take the book in chunks in order to get my head wrapped around the immensity of the onslaught portrayed between its covers. Most who have looked beneath the covers of our current food system seek something to help make sense of what they have seen or at least to get a footing before moving forward with action. A historical perspective can provide that. If you are concerned that our treatment and use of animals today has become macabre, then I urge you to read this book. By providing my understanding of today's horror show with a historical context this book helps me to keep moving forward with compassionate choices and to work deliberately within my chosen profession towards bringing about a shift in consciousness. I hope you will find it beneficial as well.

Thorough description of the history of domestication and how it shaped the course of history. Once humans learned to subjugate animals, he learned how to dominate other humans with the use of violence. A practice in use even today.
