The Modern Savage: Our Unthinking Decision to Eat Animals

James McWilliams


Just Food writer James McWilliams's exploration of the "compassionate carnivore" flow and the anomaly of humanity's dating with animals.


In the final 4 a long time, foodstuff reformers have printed the ecological and moral difficulties of consuming animals raised in commercial settings, turning what was the boutique crisis of radical eco-freaks right into a mainstream move. even if animal items are usually classified "cage free," "free range," and "humanely raised," do we belief those items to be secure, sound, or ethical?

In The smooth Savage, well known author, historian, and animal suggest James McWilliams pushes again opposed to the questionable ethical criteria of a principally omnivorous international and explores the "alternative to the alternative"-not consuming domesticated animals in any respect. In poignant, robust, and persuasive prose, McWilliams finds the scope of the cruelty that occurs even at the smallest and-supposedly-most humane animal farms. In an international more and more conscious of animals' intelligence and the diversity in their feelings, McWilliams advocates for the one really ethical, sustainable choice-a nutrition with out meat, dairy, or different animal products.

The smooth Savage is a riveting reveal of an that has commonly hidden in the back of a veil of morality, and a compelling account of the way to stay a more cost effective, environmental, and moral life.
