Why We Love Dogs, Eat Pigs, and Wear Cows: An Introduction to Carnism by Melanie Joy PhD

What’s special about this book unlike many others is that rather than explaining why we should stop eating meat, it explains why we eat meat and thus how we can be more informed citizens and question the ethicality of our choices as consumers.
