Eating Animals

Produced by This shop

Eating Animals is a powerful book that explores the kinds of foods we eat and why. Although the focus of the book is on meat, it is not, in the author's own words, ‘a straight-forward case for vegetarianism'.
 Rather, it is a call for everyone to consider the environmental, ethical and social implications of modern farming methods.

Safran Foer's investigations into where meat comes from includes persuasive arguments for and against eating animals, including the views of a wide range of stakeholders in the industry, including farmers, slaughterers, consumers and animal rights activists. Although Safran Foer draws his own conclusions about the morality of meat consumption, ultimately it is a call for readers to become more conscious consumers.

Eating Animals transcends straight reportage and evolves as a story about where food fits in to our families and cultures. Although harrowing in places, Eating Animals is a surprisingly beautiful read. Safran Foer's considerable skill as a novellist results in a book that is utterly compelling; every sentence is finely honed and devastating.

    RIP to a great man and a really good Samaritan- Last year Mr Date grabbed headlines around the world after he volunteered to knit sweaters for little penguins on Phillip Island in the wake of an oil spill. Mr Date said he always made sure his jumpers for the tiny penguins - who can be poisoned by oil spills - were up to par. 'I like to make it without mistakes and I don't excuse myself for doing it. (But) I think there is an excuse for a person who's gone beyond the normal span of life'
