In just over a year, the book with the strange title--and even strager ideas, some would say--has become the classic articulation of the hidden connections between meat eating and patriarchy, between vegetarianism and feminism. Now in paperback and widely available to readers everywhere, The Sexual Politics of Meat will have an even larger impact on the American public.

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:

"Adams's original, provocative book makes a major contribution to the debate on animal rights."—Publishers Weekly

"An important and provocative work...the author provides a compelling case for inextricably linking feminist and vegetarian theory. This book is likely both to inspire and enrage readers across the political spectrum."—Library Journal

"An intelligent polemic...Adams's observations are telling, most are seductively sprung...the argument is both thoughtful and thought-provoking."—Kirkus Review

"It's a consciousness-raising and conscience-challenging book." —Andrea Dworkin

"I appreciated learning about Nellie McKay, the vegan-feminist, singer-songwriter, and of Daniel Menaker's visit to her apartment, where he found a 'heavily underlined and annotated book about the connection between male oppression and meat-eating.' Based on a quick survey, he concluded that the unnamed book 'appears to make a good deal of disturbing sense.' The name of the book is 'The Sexual Politics of Meat,' and I am its author." —Carol J. Adams, letter to the editor, New York Times Magazine, published Jan. 16, 2005

"A bible of the vegan community." —The New York Times
