Summary

This is the vegetarian dialectic of diet and ethic: not coincidentally, but absolutely essentially, those foods that deprive the fewest lives of others contribute to the longest lives for ourselves. (from the preface) Vegetarians are not a better sort of people, just a better sort of carnivore, writes Braunstein in Radical Vegetarianism, and carnivores are just a better sort of cannibal. In this updated edition of the 1981 classic, Braunstein courageously takes on the canned canards, sacred cows, and wooly thinking of carnivores and vegetarians alike, and proposes a vegetarianism that goes beyond the stereotypes of pot-lucks and Birkenstocks to one that embraces contradiction and candor, or, as Braunstein says (channeling the Ancients), Gnaw Thyself. Contents:Nutrition in the Light of VegetarianismAshes to Ashes, Life to LifeLetter to a Young VegetarianTraveling FastThe Milky WayAnimals and InfidelsCarnivoral Death and Karmic DebtThe Illogic of the EcologicThe Problem of Being a Flesh EaterAn Apologetic Addendum
