Summary

''This clear and elegantly argued book examines the many reasons for adopting a vegetarian diet, from animal interests and rights, to health benefits, global ecology, and world hunger. Hill's careful working through of different moral philosophies makes the book excellent for critical thinking and introduction to moral philosophy courses as well as for courses in contemporary ethical issues and environmental ethics. The book includes a chapter responding to common objections to becoming a vegetarian and an examination of why, if the evidence in its favor is so strong, vegetarianism has not caught on more widely. More comprehensive and more philosophical than previous books on the subject, The Case for Vegetarianism is truly the ''vegetarian defense manual.''''--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
