Why we Love Dogs, Eat Pigs, and Wear Cows: an Introduction to Carnism
Por Melanie Joy, PhD
Editor: Conari Press, 2010

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.



Melanie Joy, Ph.D. is a social psychologist and professor of psychology and sociology at the University of Massachusetts, Boston. She is the author of the activist handbook Strategic Action for Animals: Handbook on Strategic Movement Building, Organizing, and Activism for Animal Liberation. Website: and
