This accessible and cutting-edge work offers a new look at the history of western "civilization," one that brings into focus the interrelated suffering of oppressed humans and other animals. Nibert argues persuasively that throughout history the exploitation of other animals has gone hand in hand with the oppression of women, people of color, and other oppressed groups. He ...more

This is easily one of my favorite books as it was completely life altering for me. It's a tad too personal to discuss here, but I highly recommend this book. The author was also my professor three times and every course I took was enlightening. It's a quick, one sitting, read so there is no excuse to miss out on it!

This book was extremely educational and eye-opening, and it made quite an impact on me. I have taken three university courses from David Nibert, and found him to be a very intelligent and passionate person. His passion for human and animal rights is very clear in this book, in which he discusses the ways that the oppression of humans and animals are intertwined. The book is full of fascinating and shocking information, and is a quick and very informative read.

One of the best, if not the best book on animal rights I've ever read. Such an important read for anyone interested in justice, Nibert shows that the mechanisms for oppression are the same among groups whether those groups be defined by race, sex, or species.

This is truly one of the most comprehensive books on history and compassionate morality that I have ever read. Nibert ties the oppression of humans throughout history to the oppression of animals in a way that touches any heart that is not dead deeply. Meticulously researched and extremely well-written. It is a book that I think all of us who are hurt and angered by the smallest oppression of the weak feel that we have waited all of our lives to read.

Below are just some notes and reflections I

Sometimes it would be helpful for book blurbs to be more upfront about the politics inside. It isn't that I disagree with the the politics Nibert presents (or, rather, the solutions to the current problems our society faces in treating both other animals and humans); it is that I was hoping for a more unique look at the "entanglements of oppression." Although some things Nibert writes I was unfamiliar with (aka: the way specific corporations like Sears got a slap on the wrist for harming custome ...more

This book offers a new way of thinking about human-constructed culture, and has completely changed how I think about history, government, businesses, democracy, and capitalism, as well as of course human and other animals' rights. I will have to rethink what I thought I knew about many historic and recent events - I'm shocked by how I was previously misled. And I see current events through a new lens.

Parts of it are very discouraging, particularly chapter 2, which is an unrelenting and unblinki
