In this fascinating and informative story of vegetarianism since pre-historic times, Colin Spencer describes its religious, philosophical, and social aspects, introducing such prominent and often colorful believers as Pythagoras, Ovid, Leonardo, Sir Thomas More, Shelley, Benjamin Franklin, Thomas Paine, Tolstoy, Shaw, Gandhi, and Hitler. Gracefully written and meticulously researched, the book presents not only a surprising slice through world history but also an unusual story of dissidence and revolt.
