This little book is not so much about health as about morality. The author passionately urges us to recognize and accept that meat-eating is wrong; that killing animals for food is wrong; that animals deserve our consideration as living beings; that the raising of animals for slaughter is damaging to our environment, and consequently also morally wrong as we are stewards of our environment. Furthermore, the social cost of eating meat is high as our global resources are squandered by making wrong communal and personal choices about what we eat.
`In recent years, social work has been devalued by politicians and the media. However it requires practitioners equipped with key skills to empower individuals and communities and rooted in values which stimulate them to promote social justice. It is heartening that social work educators are at the forefront of equipping social workers with the skills and values to promote a better society. This book will open hearts and minds to achieve these ends' - Bob Holman, former Community Worker and Professor of Social Policy
