Part memoir, nutritional primer, and political manifesto, this controversial examination exposes the destructive history of agriculture—causing the devastation of prairies and forests, driving countless species extinct, altering the climate, and destroying the topsoil—and asserts that, in order to save the planet, food must come from within living communities. In order for this to happen, the argument champions eating locally and sustainably and encourages those with the resources to grow their own food. Further examining the question of what to eat from the perspective of both human and environmental health, the account goes beyond health choices and discusses potential moral issues from eating—or not eating—animals. Through the deeply personal narrative of someone who practiced veganism for 20 years, this unique exploration also discusses alternatives to industrial farming, reveals the risks of a vegan diet, and explains why animals belong on ecologically sound farms.

In this book author John McCabe tackles the myths, rumors, and lies surrounding the vegan diet. While hundreds of thousands of Americans undergo heart surgery largely because they have eaten a diet heavy in meat, dairy, and eggs, some people consider the vegan diet to be extreme. However, what should be considered extreme is a populace consuming massive quantities of foods that are known to cause human disease, including meat, dairy, eggs, processed sugars and salts, synthetic chemicals, and damaging fats. What should not be considered extreme is a low fat vegan diet rich in raw fruits, vegetables, nuts and seeds, which is a diet that infuses health. It is a diet that, when followed, greatly reduces the chances of experiencing what have become common degenerative and chronic diseases, including cardiovascular disease, cancer, diabetes, obesity, MS, Alzheimer's, Chron's, arthritis, osteoporosis, macular degeneration, and kidney disease. What have become the common foods in America are also becoming common in other countries. Because of this, rates of chronic and degenerative diseases are increasing in other countries. Incidence of heart attacks, strokes, diabetic coma, and conditions such as erectile dysfunction largely can be traced back to low quality dietary choices, and chiefly to diets rich in animal protein, unhealthful fats, and synthetic chemicals. Modern scientific studies done at institutions around the planet are concluding that a diet free of animal protein and rich in fruits and vegetables is a way of greatly improving health while reducing common diseases. From an environmental standpoint, a plant based diet is more sustainable, and it reduces the use of fossil fuels, improving the conditions of the environment and wildlife. Everyone from world-class athletes to political leaders, corporate executives, actors, and common people are tuning in to the health benefits of the vegan diet. This book helps to explain the benefits fo the diet, and how to go about it so that vibrant health can be experiences, and the chances of experiencing common diseases is greatly reduced.
Fifty years after his death, C. S. Lewis fascinates his readers still. Well established as a key figure in children's literature he is increasingly recognized as a significant Christian thinker. The authors in this volume are from a wide range of Christian traditions--testimony to the reach and significance of Lewis's legacy. The essays return to Lewis's devotional and theological works, assessing their place in his own thought and in the theology of the twentieth century. Lewis emerges as an insightful and creative theologian whose ideas continue to surprise in their sophistication and fecundity. Indeed, it is suggested that he represents a way of doing theology--"mere theology"--which suggests ways in which Christian thought may reengage the complex cultural debates of the contemporary world.
Most people have probably heard at least one reason-perhaps several-for adopting a vegetarian diet. 101 Reasons Why I'm a Vegetarian is a veritable one-stop shop for ethical, ecological, health-related, social, and economic arguments that challenge conventional views about what humans should eat. After conducting years of research in industry periodicals, government documents, expert opinion, and the mainstream media, Pamela Rice, founder of the Vegetarian Center of New York City, has built the strongest support of vegetarianism to date. A work of prodigious scholarship and dedication, presented with wit and skill, 101 Reasons Why I'm a Vegetarian is sure to become the handy reference work for vegetarians who want to give their meat-eating friends one book that explains why they do what they do, and for meat-eaters who want to understand all the arguments for a meatless diet.

Europe as a whole, and the Netherlands in particular, are now experiencing the aftershocks of the Second World War and, for the most part, tacit assumptions of the ideological premises of Nazism and its virulent forms of anti-Semitism. Far from dissolving in the current period of large scale Muslim migration to this nation along with the rest of Western Europe, the so-called Jewish Question continues to loom large. Not the least of concerns is how a nation with a strong liberal democratic tradition like the Netherlands was able to participate in the exile and ultimately extermination of its long-standing and productive Jewish communities. The work of Derks attempts to take up such large-scale historical considerations by a review of three major European figures: Hannah Arendt. Theodor Adorno, and Max Weber, and what light they shed on this disquieting outcome to Jewish life in Europe for the second half of the twentieth century. The great strength of Derk's book is the solid testing of broad ranging theories about Jewish life against the backdrop of Dutch history. How did it happen that a nation with a strong democratic tradition and hospitality toward Jews also revealed the highest percentage of Jews caught, captured and shipped into Germany's extermination camps. What adds to the anguish is that Dutch Jews were among the most enlightened, secular, and integrated in geographical terms at least in all of Europe. Yet, such factors did not protect them from the same end as befell Jews throughout the rest of Europe. Derks' book, with its deep appreciation for Arendt's effort, helps to at least address, if not resolve, this riddle.
19th century Britain was one of the birthplaces of modern vegetarianism in the west. James Gregory explores the relationship between this newly organised movement and wider cultural society.
