Growl Review

The Christian Vegetarian Association's newsletter reviewed Kim Stallwood's Growl: "Stallwood identifies four key values to animal rights: compassion, truth, nonviolence, and justice. His book is largely an exploration of how these values apply to everyday advocacy. He also identifies five stages (which often overlap) of social movements: public education, public policy development, legislation, enforcement, and public acceptance. Animal advocates often focus on public education, in part because it does not require any compromise of values. In contrast, any successful legislative action requires compromise, which might seem to undermine core values."

Praise for Cash Cow by Elise Desaulniers

"Cash Cow is an exceptionally well written book that truly breaks new ground. It is a comprehensive and well researched expose on the dairy industry that is also concise and easily digestible. In a thoughtful and supportive tone, Elise Desaulniers challenges the reader to critically examine his or her assumptions, and she provides the information necessary to both understand and free oneself from the perils of dairy. This book is a must-read for anyone who is interested in becoming more empowered to make informed, healthful, and ethical food choices." - Melanie Joy, Founder and President of Beyond Carnism
