Book Excerpt :

The healthy diet plan that's become a million-copy word-of-mouth bestseller -- now completely revised and updated. Hailed a "medical breakthrough" by Dr. Mehmet Oz, Eat to Live offers a highly effective, scientifically proven way to lose weight quickly. The key to Dr. Joel Fuhrman's revolutionary six-week plan is simple: health = nutrients / calories. When the ratio of nutrients to calories in the food you eat is high, you lose weight. The more nutrient-dense food you eat, the less you crave fat, sweets, and high-caloric foods. Eat to Live has been revised to include inspiring success stories from people who have used the program to lose shocking amounts of weight and recover from life-threatening illnesses; Dr. Fuhrman's nutrient density index; up-to-date scientific research supporting the principles behind Dr. Fuhrman's plan; new recipes and meal ideas; and much more. This easy-to-follow, nutritionally sound diet can help anyone shed pounds quickly-and keep them off.

Book Short Summary:

This companion to the documentary Cowspiracy explores the devastating environmental impacts of animal agriculture—and new paths to sustainability. The 2014 documentary Cowspiracy presented alarming truths about the effects of animal agriculture on the planet. One of the leading causes of deforestation, greenhouse gas production, water use, species extinction, ocean dead-zones, and a host of other ills, animal agriculture is a major threat to the future of all species, and one of the environmental industry’s best-kept secrets. The Sustainability Secret expands upon Cowspiracy in every way. In this updated volume, the film’s co-creators reveal shocking new facts and interview the leaders of businesses, environmental organizations, and political groups about the disastrous effects of animal agriculture. Extended transcripts, updated statistics, tips on becoming vegan, and comprehensive reading lists provide an in-depth overview of this planetary crisis and demonstrate effective ways to offset the damage.

  • Pdf File: green-meat.pdf

Book Short Summary:

It seems an irrefutable truth that raising animals for meat has become unsustainable. Land is being eroded and destroyed, water resources overdrawn, greenhouse gases overemitted, and energy and crops unnecessarily diverted - all to satiate a growing and inequitable global overconsumption of meat. But is all meat unsustainable? Sustainable food systems are multiple and varied and represent the diversity and complexity we see in the world. A range of socio-ecological and political-economic challenges and solutions are involved in the question of whether sustainable meat consumption exists. Green Meat? teases out some of that complexity in order to consider what roles animals and their products might play in the future as the world works towards new ways of living. Through an interdisciplinary lens, scholars and practitioners critically examine the multifaceted dimensions of "green meat": contributors confront the industrial production and slaughter of animals, ask what it means to be a carnivore, and consider the possibilities of regenerative animal agriculture and cellular agriculture. The book analyzes ongoing damage to the landscape, the climate, and water systems caused by conventional livestock production and looks at current debates about the place of meat in sustainable agri-food systems. An expansive inquiry into food production practices, Green Meat? will inspire the kind of discussion and debate necessary to grapple with the complex issue of sustainability.

Book Short Summary:

While the history of philosophy has traditionally given scant attention to food and the ethics of eating, in the last few decades the subject of food ethics has emerged as a major topic, encompassing a wide array of issues, including labor justice, public health, social inequity, animal rights and environmental ethics. This handbook provides a much needed philosophical analysis of the ethical implications of the need to eat and the role that food plays in social, cultural and political life. Unlike other books on the topic, this text integrates traditional approaches to the subject with cutting edge research in order to set a new agenda for philosophical discussions of food ethics. The Routledge Handbook of Food Ethics is an outstanding reference source to the key topics, problems and debates in this exciting subject and is the first collection of its kind. Comprising over 35 chapters by a team of international contributors, the Handbook is divided into 7 parts: the phenomenology of food gender and food food and cultural diversity liberty, choice and food policy food and the environment farming and eating other animals food justice Essential reading for students and researchers in food ethics, it is also an invaluable resource for those in related disciplines such as environmental ethics and bioethics.

Book Short Summary:

Every cow just wants to be happy. Every chicken just wants to be free. Every bear, dog, or mouse experiences sorrow and feels pain as intensely as any of us humans do. In a compelling appeal to reason and human kindness, Matthieu Ricard here takes the arguments from his best-sellers Altruism and Happiness to their logical conclusion: that compassion toward all beings, including our fellow animals, is a moral obligation and the direction toward which any enlightened society must aspire. He chronicles the appalling sufferings of the animals we eat, wear, and use for adornment or "entertainment," and submits every traditional justification for their exploitation to scientific evidence and moral scrutiny. What arises is an unambiguous and powerful ethical imperative for treating all of the animals with whom we share this planet with respect and compassion.

Book Short Summary:

The first edition of Anthropology and Climate Change (2009) pioneered the study of climate change through the lens of anthropology, covering the relation between human cultures and the environment from prehistoric times to the present. This second, heavily revised edition brings the material on this rapidly changing field completely up to date, with major scholars from around the world mapping out trajectories of research and issuing specific calls for action. The new edition introduces new “foundational” chapters—laying out what anthropologists know about climate change today, new theoretical and practical perspectives, insights gleaned from sociology, and international efforts to study and curb climate change—making the volume a perfect introductory textbook; presents a series of case studies—both new case studies and old ones updated and viewed with fresh eyes—with the specific purpose of assessing climate trends; provides a close look at how climate change is affecting livelihoods, especially in the context of economic globalization and the migration of youth from rural to urban areas; expands coverage to England, the Amazon, the Marshall Islands, Tanzania, and Ethiopia; re-examines the conclusions and recommendations of the first volume, refining our knowledge of what we do and do not know about climate change and what we can do to adapt.

A new memoir from the #1 New York Times, #1 Wall Street Journal, and top 10 USA Today bestselling author of The Dog Lived (And So Will I) "A literary masterpiece! Teresa Rhyne writes from the heart and soul... This is a must read not only for dog lovers, but for anyone with a passion for animals." - Shannon Keith, Founder and President of the Beagle Freedom Project We rescue dogs and bring them into our lives...and often they rescue us in return. What would cause a cheese-loving, meat-eating lawyer to become a vegan? Her dog. Teresa Rhyne and Seamus the beagle both survived cancer once, so when Seamus develops yet another cancer, Teresa vows to fight again. She finds better food for Seamus, and a plant-based diet becomes her own guide, but she realized that's not enough for her-and it's not enough for the animals. As she searches for a more compassionate lifestyle, she struggles to find her place somewhere between a hypocrite in leather high heels and a hippie in a hemp skirt, all while coping with the threat of Seamus slipping away. When she encounters two other dogs who need help, including one rescued from animal testing, turning away seems impossible after everything she's discovered. Will turning her life upside down to rescue two more beagles be the best medicine for everyone? An honest, funny book about dogs, relationships and surviving life's challenges with humor and grace is perfect for fans of Marley and Me, The Middle Place and A Dog's Purpose will love this touching memoir.

Book Short Summary:

Now more than ever, American dads act as hands-on caregivers who are devoted to keeping themselves and their families healthy. Yet, men are also disproportionately likely to neglect their own health care, diets, and exercise routines—bad habits that they risk passing on to their children. In Dads, Kids, and Fitness, William Marsiglio challenges dads to become more health-conscious in how they live and raise their children. His conclusions are drawn not only from his revealing interviews with a diverse sample of dads and pediatric healthcare professionals, but also from his own unique personal experiences—as a teenage father who, thirty-one years later, became a later-life dad to a second son. Marsiglio’s research highlights the value of treating dads as central players in what he calls the social health matrix, which can serve both healthy children and those with special needs. He also outlines how schools, healthcare facilities, religious groups, and other organizations can help dads make a positive imprint on their families’ health, fitness, and well-being. Anchored in compelling life stories of joy, tragedy, and resilience, Dads, Kids, and Fitness extends and deepens public conversation about health at a pivotal historical moment. Its progressive message breathes new life into discussions about fathering, manhood, and health.

They may also face challenges when grocery shopping, dining out, and interacting with friends and family. More and more Americans are reducing or completely eliminating meat and other animal products from their diet. Some are motivated by concerns surrounding animal welfare and the environmental impact of meat, while others hope to improve their health by following a plant-based diet.

Book Short Summary:

Dogs are getting lawyers. Cats are getting kidney transplants. Could they one day be fellow citizens? Cats and dogs were once wild animals. Today, they are family members and surrogate children. A little over a century ago, pets didn't warrant the meager legal status of property. Now, they have more rights and protections than any other animal in the country. Some say they're even on the verge of becoming legal persons. How did we get here—and what happens next? In this fascinating exploration of the changing status of dogs and cats in society, pet lover and award-winning journalist David Grimm explores the rich and surprising history of our favorite companion animals. He treks the long and often torturous path from their wild origins to their dark days in the middle ages to their current standing as the most valued animals on Earth. As he travels across the country—riding along with Los Angeles detectives as they investigate animal cruelty cases, touring the devastation of New Orleans in search of the orphaned pets of Hurricane Katrina, and coming face-to-face with wolves and feral cats—Grimm reveals the changing social attitudes that have turned pets into family members, and the remarkable laws and court cases that have elevated them to quasi citizens. The journey to citizenship isn't a smooth one, however. As Grimm finds, there's plenty of opposition to the rising status of cats and dogs. From scientists and farmers worried that our affection for pets could spill over to livestock and lab rats to philosophers who say the only way to save society is to wipe cats and dogs from the face of the earth, the battle lines are being drawn. We are entering a new age of pets—one that is fundamentally transforming our relationship with these animals and reshaping the very fabric of society. For pet lovers or anyone interested in how we decide who gets to be a “person” in today's world, Citizen Canine is a must read. It is a pet book like no other.

Ethical and Political Approaches to Nonhuman Animal Issues

  • Pdf File: ethical-and-political-approaches-to-nonhuman-animal-issues.pdf

Book Short Summary:

This book offers ethical and political approaches to issues that nonhuman animals face. The recent ‘political turn’ in interspecies ethics, from ethical to political approaches, has arisen due to the apparent lack of success of the nonhuman animal movement and dissatisfaction with traditional approaches. Current works largely present general positions rather than address specific issues and principally rely on mainstream approaches. This book offers alternative positions such as cosmopolitan, libertarian, and left humanist thought, as well as applying ethical and political thought to specific issues, such as experimentation, factory farming, nonhuman political agency, and intervention. Presenting work by theorists and activists, insights are offered from both ethics and politics that impact theory and practice and offer essential considerations for those engaging in interspecies ethics within the political turn era.

Book Short Summary:

Intellectual struggles with the "animal question"-- how humans can rethink and reconfigure their relationships with other animals-- first began to take hold in the 1970s. Over the next forty years, scholars from a wide range of fields would make sweeping reevaluations of the relationship between humans and other animals. The Oxford Handbook of Animal Studies brings these diverse evaluations together for the first time, paying special attention to the commodification of animals, the degradation of the natural world and a staggering loss of animal habitat and species extinction, and the increasing need for humans to coexist with other animals in urban, rural and natural contexts. Linda Kalof maps these themes into the five major categories that structure this volume: Animals in the Landscape of Law, Politics and Public Policy; Animal Intentionality, Agency and Reflexive Thinking; Animals as Objects in Science, Food, Spectacle and Sport; Animals in Cultural Representations; and Animals in Ecosystems. Written by international scholars with backgrounds in philosophy, law, history, English, art, sociology, geography, archaeology, environmental studies, cultural studies, and animal advocacy, the thirty chapters in this handbook investigate key issues and concepts central to understanding our current relationship with other animals and the potential for coexistence in an ecological community of living beings.

Book Short Summary:

Gunter Anders' Philosophy of Technology is the first comprehensive exploration of the ground-breaking work of German thinker Gunter Anders. Anders' philosophy has become increasingly prescient in our digitised, technological age as his work predicts the prevalence of social media, ubiquitous surveillance and the turn to big data. Anders' ouevre also explored the technologies of nuclear power and the biotech concerns for the human and transhuman condition which have become so central to current theory. Babette Babich argues that Anders offers important resources on streaming digital media through his writings on radio, television and film and is, unusually, both a comprehensive and profound thinker. Anders' relationship with key philosophers like Hannah Arendt and Walter Benjamin and his thinking on Goethe, Nietzsche and Rilke is also explored with a focus on the deep impact he made on his peers. It reflects specifically on the intersection of Anders' thought Heidegger and the Frankfurt school and how influential a figure he was on the landscape of 20th century philosophy. A compelling rehabilitation of a thinker with profound contemporary relevance.

Book Short Summary:

There is no magic pill. There is no perfect diet. Could it be that our underlying assumption—that what we’re eating is making us fat and sick—is just plain wrong? To address the rapid rise of “lifestyle diseases” like diabetes and heart disease, scientists have conducted a whopping 500,000 studies of diet and another 300,000 of obesity. Journalists have written close to 250 million news articles combined about these topics. Yet nothing seems to halt the epidemic. Anastacia Marx de Salcedo’s Eat Like a Pig, Run Like a Horse looks not just to data-driven science, but to animals and the natural world around us for a new approach. What she finds will transform the national debate about the root causes of our most pervasive diseases and offer hope of dramatically reducing the number who suffer—no matter what they eat. It all began with her own medical miracle—she has multiple sclerosis but has discovered that daily exercise was key to keeping it from progressing. And now, new research backs up her own experience. This revelation prompted Marx de Salcedo to ask what would happen if people with lifestyle illnesses put physical activity front and center in their daily lives? Eat Like a Pig, Run Like a Horse takes us on a fascinating journey that weaves together true confessions, mad(ish) scientists, and beguiling animal stories. Marx de Salcedo shows that we need to move beyond our current diet-focused model to a new, dynamic concept of metabolism as regulated by exercise. Suddenly the answer to good health is almost embarrassingly simple. Don’t worry about what you eat. Worry about how much you move. In a few years’ time, adhering to a finicky Keto, Paleo, low-carb, or any other special diet to stay healthy will be as antiquated as using Daffy’s Elixir or Dr. Bonker’s Celebrated Egyptian Oil—popular “medicines” from the 1800s—to cure disease. And just as the 19th-century health revolution was based on a new understanding that the true cause of malaria, tuberculosis, and cholera was microorganisms, so the coming 21st-century one will be based on our new understanding that exercise is the only way to metabolic health. Fascinating and brilliant, Eat Like a Pig, Run Like a Horse is primed to usher in that new era.

Book Short Summary:

La plupart des gens désirent le bien des animaux. Mais voilà: ils aiment aussi leur steak. C’est ce qu’on appelle le paradoxe de la viande. Nous ne voulons pas voir que ce que nous mangeons, c’est de l’animal mort. De plus en plus de chercheurs expliquent ce phénomène de «dissonance cognitive» par des pratiques sociales et des croyances qui visent précisément à occulter la souffrance animale. Tout converge pour nous convaincre, depuis l’enfance, qu’il est normal, naturel et nécessaire de consommer des produits d’origine animale. Pourtant, dans les faits, rien n’est moins vrai – tant du point de vue de la santé que de l’éthique animale et environnementale. Dans cet essai accessible et engagé, Martin Gibert propose une synthèse des débats contemporains sur le paradoxe de la viande. Ce faisant, il présente le véganisme, un mouvement moral et politique en pleine émergence qui lutte pour la justice animale, sociale et environnementale.

Book Short Summary:

Animal lovers who feed meat to other animals are faced with a paradox: perhaps fewer animals would be harmed if they stopped feeding the ones they love. Animal diets do not raise problems merely for individuals. To address environmental crises, health threats, and harm to animals, we must change our food systems and practices. And in these systems, animals, too, are eaters. Moving beyond what humans should eat and whether to count animals as food, Just Fodder answers ethical and political questions arising from thinking about animals as eaters. Josh Milburn begins with practical dilemmas about feeding the animals closest to us, our pets or animal companions. The questions grow more complicated as he considers relationships with more distance – questions about whether and how to feed garden birds, farmland animals who would eat our crops, and wild animals. Milburn evaluates the nature and circumstances of our relationships with animals to generate a novel theory of animal rights. Looking past arguments about what we can and cannot do to other beings, Just Fodder asks what we can, should, and must do for them, laying out a fuller range of our ethical obligations to other animals.

Book Short Summary:

Wie wollen wir leben und wie können wir unserem Leben Sinn geben angesichts der drängenden Krisen der Gegenwart? Wie können solche Fragen überhaupt beantwortet werden, wenn eine säkulare Kultur scheinbar nur Antworten auf Fragen nach dem "wie?", nicht aber nach dem "wozu?" erlaubt. Martin Kolmar deutet im vorliegenden Buch die gegenwärtigen und bevorstehenden Krisen, allen voran die Klimakrise, als Krise der westlichen Denk- und Wahrnehmungsweisen und versucht einen Ausweg daraus aufzuzeigen. Dazu beginnt er mit einer Analyse westlicher Vorstellungswelten aus der Perspektive des "Erhabenen". Es zeigt sich, dass das "Erhabene" als Grenzerfahrung überraschende und relevante neue Perspektiven auf die Gegenwart öffnet und zugleich einen Weg zu einer säkularen, rationalen Form der Sinnerfahrung erkennbar macht. Das Besondere dieses Buches ist die Verknüpfung philosophischer und gesellschafts- und kulturwissenschaftlicher Forschung mit Erkenntnissen der Psychologie und der Neurowissenschaft. Es zeigt auf, dass traditionelle Vorstellungen des "Guten Lebens" und der Verortung der eigenen Existenz als Teil der Natur, mit moderner Forschung korrespondieren. Ist man bereit, sich hierauf einzulassen, stellt insbesondere die Bedrohung durch die Klimakrise nicht nur ein mögliches Katastrophenszenario und eine große technologische Herausforderung dar, sondern eine Chance für ein besseres Leben, welches aus einer anderen Haltung ihm gegenüber resultiert.

Book Short Summary:

Mennesker og dyr har den samme evne til at føle smerte. Alligevel vedbliver vi med at udsætte milliarder af dyr for unødig lidelse hvert eneste år. Matthieu Ricard argumenterer i Til forsvar for dyrene for at den medfølelse, vi har for andre mennesker, og de rettigheder, vi tildeler hinanden, også skal gælde dyrene. Bogen er baseret på utallige vidnesbyrd fra mennesker, der arbejder på slagterier, opdræt, laboratorier, i underholdningsindustrien og med vilde og truede dyr, og den er underbygget af videnskabelige undersøgelser og statistikker. Ricard undersøger de moralske, biologiske, økologiske og sundhedsmæssige konsekvenser af, at vi har afskåret os fra vores naturlige medfølelse med de andre arter, der lever på Jorden. Dyrene eksisterer ikke, for at vi kan udnytte dem – de ønsker, ligesom os, at leve deres eget liv, og det er vores moralske forpligtelse at værne om deres ret til det. Til forsvar for dyrene er fascinerende, lærerig og overbevisende og taler til os både intellektuelt og følelsesmæssigt.

Book Short Summary:

Reakcje, jakie wzbudziło pojawienie się Boskich zwierząt, zdumiały mnie swoją intensywnością. I naprawdę mocno poruszyły. Skoro z tamtym mam tyle dobrego zamieszania, po co kolejne wydanie? Właśnie po to, by wprowadzić do tekstu nowe myśli, które nie pojawiłyby się, gdyby nie konfrontacja tekstu z wnikliwym odbiorcą. By podzielić się dokonanymi w ciągu tych paru ostatnich miesięcy nowymi odkryciami. By uzupełnić i rozbudować praktyczny poradnik. Oraz by dodać do tego, co już napisałem, jeszcze jeden rozdział, którego brak instynktownie wyczuwałem – pokazujący sos, w którym wszystko to, o czym napisałem, pływa: nasz coraz ciężej chory klimat. Szymon Hołownia Czy zwierzęta idą do nieba, a jeśli tak, to gdzie są, kiedy my jesteśmy w czyśćcu? Czy mają tylko służyć człowiekowi, czy może raczej współtworzyć z nim świat? I dlaczego człowiek został wygnany z raju, a zwierzęta nie? Boskie zwierzęta to książka o tym, że Bóg nie stworzył zwierząt przez przypadek i cały czas jest z nimi w kontakcie. O tym, czy facet rzeczywiście musi polować i jeść steki. O świętych, którzy woleli nie zbudować kościoła, niż wyciąć las, albo wykupywali zwierzęta z rzeźni. O psach latających w kosmos i ruszających na wojnę oraz o wiernych ptakach.

Book Short Summary:

Jesse decides there will be no more beatings at the hands of his drunken father. He runs away from his family’s ranch and joins a group of homeless teenage boys in squatting on an abandoned ranch house. To get by they rustle cattle in western New Mexico during the 1930’s depression. Jesse is arrested and sentenced to the state penitentiary. He discovers that prison is a place of vicious guards and brutal convicts. He learns that his survival is based on knowing and following the prison’s unwritten code. Jesse survives his sentence and is released from prison. He believes that being feared is the secret to survival. To him everyone is either a predator or the prey. Jesse joins a rustling syndicate when he returns to the ranching community. While hiding out, he learns about a lost treasure in western New Mexico and becomes obsessed with finding it. The more he searches for the treasure, the greater his need for finding it. His fear that someone else will find his treasure triggers a surge in his distrust of other people. As his paranoia rages, it drives him to commit multiple murders. Jesse’s two younger brothers, Joe and Wade, return from World War II as grown men hardened by combat who no longer idolize Jesse. Instead, they suspect him of killing their father while they were away fighting in the war. The hard feelings between the brothers sparks a fight between them at a reunion on Mom’s ranch. The mutual distrust between the brothers culminates the following summer in a tragic confrontation between the three brothers on the malpais, a desolate lava flow.

Book Short Summary:

Nuestra relación con los animales es controvertida y contradictoria: nos encariñamos con nuestras mascotas mientras que el ganado es "producido" y sacrificado en masa día a día para nuestro consumo. Desde la antigüedad, los humanos hemos intentado establecer una distinción que nos diferencie y sitúe en un rango más elevado con respecto a las demás especies. Sin embargo, ¿con qué podemos justificar esta relación con los demás animales? ¿Con qué criterios categorizamos y distinguimos los diferentes grupos de seres vivos? ¿Dónde trazamos la línea divisoria entre los privilegios de las personas y los privilegios de un animal? ¿Qué opiniones y corrientes hay al respecto, y cómo ha evolucionado la ética animal hasta hoy? El presente cómic rastrea, desde los inicios de la filosofía occidental hasta el debate actual, el vasto panorama de las teorías éticas surgidas con relación a los animales. Con una lograda relación entre el dibujo y el texto, esta obra combina la rigurosidad y la complejidad del tema con entretenidas ilustraciones y anécdotas. Así, este cómic para el debate invita a cualquier lector a interrogarse sobre la "barrera" que nos separa de los animales y sobre qué actitud debemos tomar respecto de ellos.
