Bleating Hearts: The Hidden World of Animal Suffering Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Comprehensive and hard-hitting, Bleating Hearts examines the world's vast exploitation of animals, from the food, fashion, and research industries to the use of other species for sport, war, entertainment, religion, labor and pleasure.

Review:

"If there is a place in your heart for animals, this is an important book for you to read. But is also more than that. If you want to lift the veil of denial, so that you can make your life an effective statement of compassion, you'll find this book to be nothing less than extraordinary." John Robbins, author of The Food Revolution and Diet For A New America and co-founder of the Food Revolution Network

Review:

"I can't think of any recent book that so comprehensively covers animal issues and gets it so consistently right....This is a powerful and wonderful book that I cannot recommend enough." Jeffrey Moussaieff Masson, author of When Elephants Weep: The Emotional Lives of Animals

Review:

"In the face of information that might render us speechless, Mark Hawthorne is thorough and articulate. Bleating Hearts empowers us with ways to challenge what has been both normal and hidden, making this book a remarkable achievement of vision and voice." Carol J. Adams, author of The Sexual Politics of Meat

Review:

"In Bleating Hearts: The Hidden World of Animal Suffering, Mark Hawthorne shines a desperately needed and penetrating light on the underbelly of the human-nonhuman animal relationship....This is not an easy read, but it is a must-read. And, once you read this book, you will no longer be able to say: 'I didn't know what was going on.' And, moreover, once you know, I hope, I pray that you will take action." Joyce Tischler, founder of the Animal Legal Defense Fund

Review:

"An important, timely addition to unmasking the myth of the 'humane treatment' of nonhuman animals. Hawthorne's searing indictment is must reading for both those new to the animal rights movement and for seasoned animal rights activists." Tom Regan, author of The Case for Animal Rights and Empty Cages: Facing the Challenge of Animal Rights

Review:

"Bleating Hearts will fundamentally change the way you look not just at animals, but the world we share with them." James McWilliams, author of Just Food: Where Locavores Get It Wrong and How We Can Truly Eat Responsibly

Review:

"A staggering investigation into the ethics of animal exploitation around the world, Bleating Hearts pulls no punches as it examines the many ways humans use and abuse our fellow creatures. Hawthorne artfully travels to the darkest corners of animal suffering, bringing to light not only the disturbing truth about people's mistreatment of nonhumans, but what we can do about it. Eloquently written and thoroughly researched, this doesn't just belong on every animal advocate's bookshelf
