Abstract: Social psychologist Melanie Joy explores the many ways we numb ourselves and disconnect from our natural empathy for farmed animals. She coins the term “carnism” to describe the belief system that has conditioned us to eat certain animals and not others.In Why We Love Dogs, Eat Pigs, and Wear Cows Joy investigates factory farming, exposing how cruelly the animals are treated, the hazards that meatpacking workers face, and the environmental impact of raising 10 billion animals for food each year. Controversial and challenging, this book will change the way you think about food forever.
“An absorbing examination of why humans feel affection and compassion for certain animals but are callous to the suffering of others.” —Publishers Weekly
“I think Gandhi would have loved Why We Love Dogs, Eat Pigs, and Wear Cows. For this is a book that can change the way you think and change the way you live. It will lead you from denial to awareness, from passivity to action, and from resignation to hope.” –John Robbins, author of Diet for a New America and The Food Revolution
“An altogether remarkable book that could transform the way society feels about eating animals.” –Jeffrey Moussaieff Masson, author of The Face on Your Plate
“A thoughtful book full of substance and style. It should be required reading for anyone interested in what we eat and why.” –Kathy Freston, author of the New York Times bestselling Veganist and Quantum Wellness
