The Vegetarian Myth

£17.99

Manufacturer: PM Press

Product Information

 We’ve been told that a vegetarian diet can feed the hungry, honor the animals, and save the planet. Lierre Keith believed in that plant-based diet and spent twenty years as a vegan. But in The Vegetarian Myth, she argues that we’ve been led astray--not by our longings for a just and sustainable world, but by our ignorance. 

The truth is that agriculture is a relentless assault against the planet, and more of the same won’t save us. In service to annual grains, humans have devastated prairies and forests, driven countless species extinct, altered the climate, and destroyed the topsoil--the basis of life itself. Keith argues that if we are to save this planet, our food must be an act of profound and abiding repair: it must come from inside living communities, not be imposed across them. 

Part memoir, part nutritional primer, and part political manifesto, The Vegetarian Myth will challenge everything you thought you knew about food politics.

I wouldn't buy it.

I haven't read this book, not because i do not want to, but because i do not want to legitimise the author by paying for it. I daresay there are many interesting resources out there that critique veganism, many written by vegans themselves. I would like to point you toward the following review by a (vegan) dietician, well worth a read before you consider buying this book: http://www.theveganrd.com/2010/09/review-of-the-vegetarian-myth.html
