5.0 out of 5 stars Carnism
There have been times when slavery, patriarchy, racism, sexism, and other kinds of prejudices were considered "normal" and "natural" until groups of people became conscious of the immorality of such systems and ideologies (of course, these fights are far from over). Large groups of people are beginning to see the immorality of human prejudices against non-human animals,...

2.0 out of 5 stars too little information
I was rather disappointed by this book. I expected more. The first half explains in a rather scientific way, how the farming industry (in the US) works. Not too much news there. AND what I found rather shocking, the whole second half (50%) of the book consists only of listed references etc. A bit of a disappointment.

5.0 out of 5 stars Carnism, 4 Sep 2011
There have been times when slavery, patriarchy, racism, sexism, and other kinds of prejudices were considered "normal" and "natural" until groups of people became conscious of the immorality of such systems and ideologies (of course, these fights are far from over). Large groups of people are beginning to see the immorality of human prejudices against non-human animals, especially those animals that we eat (imagine how you would feel about billions of cats and dogs being factory farmed and slaughtered so that people can eat burgers and steaks--the disgust you feel is normal, and that should be your reaction to cows, pigs, and chickens being factory farmed and slaughtered for a bit of gustatory pleasure). This book is an important part of the ongoing moral expansion. Unlike other similar books, this one focuses on the psychological and societal underpinnings of meat eating--what the author calls "carnism." Once you become aware of carnism, you begin to see its manifestations everywhere. You're no longer neutral; you either support or oppose carnism.

5.0 out of 5 stars Everyone should read this, 14 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Why We Love Dogs, Eat Pigs, and Wear Cows: An Introduction to Carnism (Paperback)
I was already a vegan when I read this but it's such a moving read. I wish all meat eaters would read this to understand why they eat meat and to really appreciate where their food comes from and the suffering that goes into providing them with that burger or pork chop.
