Summary
This set calls into question the capitalist system at a point in human history when inequality and the imbalance in the distribution of wealth are growing domestically and internationally. Expert contributors show why the oppression of animals--particularly the use of other animals as food--is increasingly being linked to unfavorable climate change and the depletion of fresh water and other vital resources
