Abstract

The exploding global consumption of meat is implicated in momentous but greatly underappreciated problems, and industrial livestock production is the driving force behind soaring demand. In The Ecological Hoofprint, Tony Weis seeks to explain why the growth and industrialization of livestock production is a central part of the accelerating biophysical contradictions of industrial capitalist agriculture. Petterson Molina Vale finds that the book shows with clarity that it is time the role of livestock is reconsidered in society.
