Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Believing that domination of women and violence toward women are often connected with domination of and violence toward animals, Adams (The Sexual Politics of Meat: a Feminist-Vegetarian Critical Theory, Continuum, 1990) continues her ecofeminist analysis of the relationship between objectification (for example, of animals and their corpses or of women through pornography), experimentation, and consumption. In the process, she provides a radical critique of patriarchal culture; "Christian humanocentric theology," which supports not only human/animal dualism but also man/woman dualism; and meat eating and fur wearing. She advocates an activism that reveals the truth about animal suffering and about women's lives. Recommended for informed lay readers.-Carolyn M. Craft, Longwood Coll., Farmville, Va.
