Eating Animals

Author(s): Jonathan Safran Foer

Culture & Ideas

I simply wanted to know - for myself and my family - what meat is. Where does it come from? How is it produced? What are the economic, social and environmental effects? Are there animals that it is straightforwardly right to eat? Are there situations in which not eating animals is wrong? If this began as a personal quest, it didn't stay that way for long . . . '

Jonathan Safran Foer's Eating Animalsis the most original book on the subject of food written this century. It will change the way you think, and change the way you eat. For good.
