Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
While presenting her "Sexual Politics of Meat Slide Show" throughout North America, feminist thinker Adams (The Sexual Politics of Meat; Living Among Meat Eaters: The Vegetarian's Survival Handbook) heard many complaints from teens about their parents' unwillingness to support vegetarianism. As a result, she created this comprehensive guide for adults coming to grips with their children's choice to stop eating meat, with nutritional information from Messina, a registered dietician. Like similar books (e.g., Joanne Stepaniak and Vesanto Melina's Raising Vegetarian Children: A Guide to Good Health and Family Harmony), this one promotes vegetarian diets by elaborating on their nutritional merits and providing family recipes; however, it also specifically targets the emotional family conflicts that may arise when children separate themselves by becoming vegetarians. Fear, embarrassment, and rejection are common feelings experienced. The author encourages parents to support their children's decision, not view it as merely pubescent rebellion; they should respect it because it is based on healthy moral and nutritional principles. Adams offers practical tips for sanely discussing vegetarianism with children, asking them to help plan and prepare meals, and easily altering family meals to include vegetarian choices. The book's alphabetical format makes it an excellent reference for parents. One quibble: given the format, the information begins to repeat itself when read cover to cover. Highly recommended for public libraries.-Charity Peak, Regis Univ., Colorado Springs Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
