Vegetarianism is gaining popularity and a mainstream following in the Western world like never before. Historically only practiced among certain Hindu castes in India for religious reasons, vegetarianism is now being advocated as a means to improve personal health, show compassion towards animals, and reduce carbon emissions. It is being promoted by the political left, animal rights groups like PETA, environmentalists, Hindu religious sects, New Age groups, and Hollywood celebrities. Although mainstream academia and media continue to highlight all the positives of maintaining a vegetarian diet, none of the arguments opposed to Vegetarianism are properly or thoroughly presented. Some in academia, government, and the media have even proposed that laws and taxes should be enforced to limit people's freedom and ability to eat meat. Sonny Desai debunks many of the myths and believes associated with the virtues of Vegetarianism, and proposes the idea that a vegetarian diet may not be as healthy and ethical as people are led to believe. In "The Vegetarian Agenda: The Real Reason behind the Promotion and Popularization of the Meatless Diet", Desai describes in detail many facts about vegetarianism which have been hidden from the public. He explains how vegetarianism's practice among its majority Hindu population may have contributed to India's continual subjugation by foreign rulers, and how vegetarianism may have contributed to the creation of the brutal Hindu caste system. He describes how the Indian Hindu immigrants in the West, and their academic and economic success, may be attributed to their vegetarian diet, and why religion is being used to enforce it upon them. Desai also explains the psychological and physiological effects vegetarian diets have on the human mind and body, and how by understanding it people can freely choose what to eat and not eat. Most importantly, he describes how vegetarianism is being used as a means of mind control by social engineers who would like to recreate humanity to be able to easily adapt to the new science based technological society.
Vegetarianism has been practiced in the United States since the country's founding, yet the early years of the movement have been woefully misunderstood and understudied. Through the Civil War, the vegetarian movement focused on social and political reform, but by the late nineteenth century, the movement became a path for personal strength and success in a newly individualistic, consumption-driven economy. This development led to greater expansion and acceptance of vegetarianism in mainstream society. So argues Adam D. Shprintzen in his lively history of early American vegetarianism and social reform. From Bible Christians to Grahamites, the American Vegetarian Society to the Battle Creek Sanitarium, Shprintzen explores the diverse proponents of reform-motivated vegetarianism and explains how each of these groups used diet as a response to changing social and political conditions. By examining the advocates of vegetarianism, including institutions, organizations, activists, and publications, Shprintzen explores how an idea grew into a nationwide community united not only by diet but also by broader goals of social reform.

The story of Gore-Booth's life is captivating and provides new insights into key political issues of early twentieth century Ireland and Britain. A prolific author who enjoyed a place within W.B.
