Today we launch Meatsplaining, a provocative new title in our Animal Publics series. How does the meat industry respond to questions about animal welfare, climate change, and human health? What can scholars and activists tell us about the animal agriculture industry and its public relations strategies?

Meatsplaining is in bookshops now and available from the SUP website. Here's what expert readers are saying about it: 
    Meatsplaining equips us to identify the lies at the heart of animal agriculture. It’s an excellent and timely compilation on an exceedingly vexing problem.’ – Carol J. Adams

    Meatsplaining is the first book to give an apt name to the animal agriculture industry’s relentless campaign of disinformation and denialism … Written in a clear, lively, and accessible style, Meatsplaining will surely educate the public about the horrors of animal agriculture.’ – Marc Bekoff

    ‘Cruelty thrives in secrecy, and the meat industry is highly skilled at concealing the routine abuse and misery that flourishes on modern farms. Meatsplaining cuts through the spin and exposes the meat industry's massive PR machine ... This book is a must-read for animal advocates and anyone else who no longer wants to be lied to.’ – Camille Labchuk

    ‘This book … provides a necessary corrective to the fantasy world created by meat industry propaganda. As we grapple with a global zoonotic pandemic and biodiversity crisis, it is urgent for us to … start thinking clearly about who and what is on our plates.’ – John Sorenson
