Description

Why do the vast majority of us continue to consume animals when we could choose otherwise? What are the cultural forces that drive our food choices?

Our beliefs about eating animals remain, in mainstream culture, largely unexamined, and therefore unchallenged, Robert Grillo argues. In this significant book, he attempts to uncover what drives our food choices, and specifically how the fictions of popular culture -- literature, movies, TV -- continually reinforce our current beliefs and behaviour.

The insights revealed in Farm to Fable will be of great value and interest to seasoned animal advocates as well as casual readers.
