Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Though Nicholson (b.1760) devoted his life to a number of radical causes<-->among them popular education, women's rights, democratic government, and animal welfare<-->he was not part of the London circle of radical political reforms that their enemies called English Jacobins, but a printer far from the city. He did however contribute to the movement that brought a number of reforms during the 19th century, including legislation to protect animal interests. He argues not only that eating meat is cruel to animals, but that it is unnatural for humans and therefore unhealthy. The text is double spaced. Annotation c.
