THE SEXUAL POLITICS OF MEAT: A FEMINIST-VEGETARIAN
CRITICAL THEORY by Carol J. Adams
This award-winning book is a bold, provocative work that is fascinating and timely.
Adam's compelling thesis is that women and animals are linked as "absent referents"
in the "texts" of patriarchal society, and that therefore feminist critical theory must
be informed by vegetarianism. Passionately argued and sustained by solid
scholarship, The Sexual Politics of Meat is the first major exploration of the
subject, a valuable, exciting contribution to feminist, vegetarian, and animal rights
theory. (paperback, 256 pages.)
