The Case for Vegetarianism : Philosophy for a Small Planet – John Lawrence Hill

The Case for Vegetarianism : Philosophy for a Small Planet

This clear and elegantly argued book examines from various philosophical perspectives the many reasons for adopting a vegetarian diet, from animal interest and rights, to health benefits, global ecology, and world hunger. The book includes a chapter responding to common objectives to becoming vegetarian and an examination of why, if the evidence in its favor is so strong, vegetarianism has not caught on. More comprehensive and more philosophical than previous books on the subject,The Case for Vegetarianism is truly the “vegetarian defense.”
