“Cows and the Earth” Ranchor Prime
This book tells the beautiful and inspirational story of the Bhaktivedanta Manor; a Hindu temple outside London, and the first UK dairy farm to run entirely without animal slaughter or fossil fuels. It is written in a personal style and explains the benefits of slaughter-free dairy in an easy to understand way.
Prime brilliantly synthesises illuminating scientific, historical, practical and philosophical arguments, as well as his own detective work and personal experiences, without moral superiority or condemnation.
Ranchor Prime is the well-respected author of several ecological and philosophical books such as “Hinduism and Ecology.”
Complete with colour photos, this book is a work of art as well as a powerful ecological message.
“Eating Animals” Jonathan Safran Foer
This book explores the many stories we use to justify our eating habits—folklore and pop culture, family traditions and national myth, apparent facts and inherent fictions—and how such tales allow us to forget our natural reasoning and inherent moral compass.
Marked by Foer’s moral ferocity and the humor and style that made his previous books, Everything Is Illuminated and Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close, widely loved, Foer’s latest work informs and delights, challenging us to explore what is too often conveniently brushed aside.
