Editorial Reviews

Review

"Donna Maurer's Vegetarianism: Movement or Moment? is the best resource on vegetarianism I have ever read. This book is not only filled with information; it is as readable as a best-selling novel. I was drawn into the book from start to finish and I loved reading every page." --Howard F. Lyman, author of Mad Cowboy "Donna Maurer offers a great service by taking us inside the modern vegetarian movement. She does a very fine job of explaining why people do and do not stop eating meat. [It] will serve as the basic guide to American vegetarianism for many years to come." --Warren Belasco, author of Appetite for Change: How the Counterculture Took on the Food Industry "All new vegetarian advocates should read Dr. Maurer's book. It will give them an understanding of the issues. It shows both where the movement has come from and the outreach methods it has attempted. If someone were to read Vegetarianism early in their advocacy, it would quickly advance their thought on the subject, saving them years of discovering things on their own." --Jack Norris, R.D., President, Vegan Outreach "As both a careful sociologist and a committed vegan, Donna Maurer brings fresh insight into the multi-dimensional character of vegetarianism in the United States: its values, assumptions, and practices." --Amy Bently, Department of Nutrition and Food Studies, New York University "[This book does] a good job of describing the history of a particular movement that has not received a lot of well-researched coverage." --Kliatt

7 of 7 people found the following review helpful By Paul Benvie on June 2, 2002
Format: Paperback
I loved this book, even though I am not a vegetarian. This is because Dr. Maurer's writing style is excellent; she knows how to convey what she's writing about without making it sound like a lecture. It reads like a real book, supplying many facts, insights and ideas that propel you from one page to the next. It's not preachy at all, she just tells you what vegetarianism is about, and what life is like for vegetarians (The answer to that would be pretty much no different from a meat-eater). There were a lot of interesting little tidbits in this book, like how many Seventh-Day Adventists are vegetarians, and how many Yoga practitioners are also vegetarians. I also liked reading about the efforts of individuals and groups to convince food vendors (Restaurants, school lunchrooms, etc.) to offer meatless choices as part of their menus. So, if you're at all interested in the subject matter, this would be the best place to start learning more.

Format: Paperback
This is the only good resource on Vegetarianism as a movement, with in depth information on ideologies,leaders' strategies, etc. Very helpful if you are doing research on the movement when used along with Maurer's dissertation.
