Peter Singer the groundbreaking ethicist whom The New Yorker calls the most influential philosopher alive teams up again with Jim Mason his coauthor on the acclaimed Animal Factories to set their cri. This is a fantastic book written in a non academic style covering issues such an animal welfare organic foods locally grown foods with a surprising twist on that choice and fair trade items I found this book incredibly well researched and open to empirical facts rather than demonstrating any blind allegiance to any one particular view point After reading this book I ve entered into several conversations with vegananimal rights friends of mine who generally criticize Singer who was once the philosophical head of the animals rights movement and is now seen generally as having sold out to places such as Whole Foods for his shift towards animal welfarism rather than animal rights I was directed to a website called humane myths that discusses the myths behind humanely raised food though I actually found it supported my animal welfarist feelings rather than refuted them Anyways this is an excellent book though I m sure animal rightists would disagree but I highly recommend it to all who wish to eat ethically and see that decision as one filled with nuances and trade offs rather than as a black and white proposition as so many animal rightists do
