Reviews

The connections traced between rampant masculinity, misogyny, carnivorism, and militarism operate as powerfully today as when Carol Adams first diagnosed them twenty years ago. -- J. M. Coetzee
A bible of the vegan community. * New York Times *
Important and provocative ... Likely to inspire and enrage readers across the political spectrum. * Library Journal *
Adams' original, provocative book makes a major contribution to the debate on animal rights. * Publishers Weekly *
In the 20th-anniversary edition of this thought-provoking book, Adams explores the links between the slaughter of animals and violence directed against women, and ties the carnivorous diet to such patriarchal ideas as 'the end justifies the means.' * Toronto Globe and Mail *
...a richly polemical discussion of the relationships among patriarchal culture, the exploitation of women and of animals, and the politics of meat-eating. -- Joyce Carol Oates * New York Review of Books *
Adams' argument in The Sexual Politics of Meat is as elegant as it is disturbing ... It makes even the most cognizant among us feel a twinge of shame for not noticing, and reacting, sooner, and with due outrage. -- James McWilliams * Pacific Standard *
The Sexual Politics of Meat couldn't be more timely, or more disturbing. * Environmental Ethics *
