"Cruelty, greed, and monopoly power--that is what Christopher Leonard has found at the heart of America's meat packing industry. This book offers a devastating portrait of an industry's irresponsible behavior."--Eric Schlosser, author of Fast Food Nation "Leonard's primary concern is the grim and gripping story of how American meat went industrial. But he also spins a nuanced tale of how the family farm was America's first small business--and what we've lost by letting it go. A fascinating read."--Tracie McMillan, author of The American Way of Eating "I will admit when I picked up this book, it was more with the sense that it was something I should read than something that would be a page turner. And yet it immediately drew me in. Christopher Leonard's power is the ability to capture the human lives caught within the system, particularly the farmers but also the employees who helped build the corporations... this book is a compelling reminder that we all have a stake in how this business is conducted."--Sarah J. Gardner "Radish Magazine " "A meticulous exposï¿½ of the meat industry... Leonard, whether he means to or not, is also telling a broader story about American business, consumerism, and--most of all--greed... What makes The Meat Racket stand out is Leonard's superb storytelling and his clear passion for the topic...He is a man on a mission--and that is clearly the best kind of reporter to write a book like this."--Jessica Valenti "Bookforum "
