How does someone become a piece of meat? Carol J. Adams answers this question in this provocative book--her most controversial since The Sexual Politics of Meat--by finding insidious, hidden meanings in the culture around us. With 200 illustrations, this courageous book establishes why Adams's slide show, upon which The Pornography of Meat is based is so popular on campuses and is reviled by the groups she takes on with insight and passion.

About the Author:

Carol J. Adams is an activist and author of The Pornography of Meat, Living Among Meat Eaters, and many other books challenging a sexist, meat-eating world. She is a sought-after speaker throughout North America and Europe, and has been invited to more than 100 campuses to show "The Sexual Politics of Meat Slide Show," which is always being updated to include contemporary cultural representations.

Review:

"Carol Adams offers a philosophical critique of advertisements that is innovative, even startling, yet which readers cannot help but acknowledge as her book unfolds....Carol Adams' work is analytical, critical, and shows remarkably original and independent thinking. Adams has witnessed and described what the rest of us fail to notice, and backs up her observations with scores of photographs. She unfolds he grizzly discoveries with a wry sense of humor, and sends readers out into the world with a fresh vision a vision that pierces through the images on the magazine rack, in the frozen meat section of the grocery store, on billboards, or in television advertisements. Adams' work heightens awareness, shifts thinking, and has the power to alter behavior what sort of companies do I want to support with my hard earned wages? Adams' analysis of advertisements is a chilling vision into the world we all see without seeing. She is right: readers are likely to be sickened by the realities she unveils. And very likely to feel aroused aroused to new ways of seeing, understanding, and shopping."
