Grilled: Turning Adversaries into Allies to Change the Chicken Industry (Bloomsbury Sigma)
Leah Garcés has committed her career to fighting for the rights of the animals that end up on our plates. As President of the nonprofit group Mercy for Animals and former US Executive Director of Compassion in World Farming, she has led the fight against the sprawling chicken industry that raises billions of birds in cruel conditions--all to satisfy the American appetite for meat.Grilled: Turning Adversaries into Allies to Change the Chicken Industry is her story of working alongside the food and farming industry for animal welfare and ethical food. Instead of fighting and protesting and shaming--approaches that simply haven't worked previously--Garcés has instead gotten to know the producers. She has worked alongside owners of the megafarms, befriending them, having frank conversations with them, and ultimately encouraging change through dialogue and discussion. Leah is changing the way America farms her animals through this bold approach, and is helping to directly improve the lives of millions of farmed animals.When she started her journey, Leah did not have much empathy to spare for the chicken-contract farmer--until she actually met one and tried to understand the difficulties they faced. This is the story of what happens when we cross enemy lines to look for solutions. It's a story of giving in to discomfort for the sake of progress. It's a story of the power of human connection, and what happens when we practice empathy toward our enemies.
The End of Animal Farming pushes the factory farming conversation forward by outlining a strategic road map to a humane, ethical, and efficient food system in which slaughterhouses are obsolete. Social scientist Jacy Reese analyzes the social forces leading us away from animal agriculture and toward the products of companies whose technology and business strategies make this change possible for the meat-hungry public. Reese applies an analytical lens of "effective altruism" and invites readers - vegan and non-vegan - to consider one of the most transformative social movements of the coming decades.
