Summary
This work is an exploration of the difficult environmental and ethical issues that surround the human consumption of animal flesh. The world's meat consumption is rapidly rising, leading to devastating environmental impacts as well as having long term health implications for societies everywhere. The author lays out the reasons why we must decrease the amount of meat we eat, both for the planet and for ourselves. He argues, however, that the farming of animals for consumption has become problematic because we have removed ourselves physically and spiritually from the land. Our society needs to reorientate itself back to the land and the author explains why an agriculture that is most readily able to achieve this is one that includes a measure of livestock farming. -- From publisher
