by Donald D. Stull and Michael J. Broadway

Slaughterhouse Blues : Meat and Poultry Industry in North America (ISBN10: 0534613039; ISBN13: 9780534613037)
ISBN13: 978-0534613037
ISBN10: 0534613039

Summary: SLAUGHTERHOUSE BLUES: THE MEAT AND POULTRY INDUSTRY IN NORTH AMERICA draws on more than 15 years of research by the authors, a cultural anthropologist and a social geographer, to present a detailed look at the meat and poultry industry in the United States and Canada. Following chapters on today's beef, poultry, and pork industries, SLAUGHTERHOUSE BLUES examines industry impacts on workers and on the communities that host its plants. The book details the authors' eff ...show moreorts to help communities plan for and mitigate the negative consequences of meat and poultry plants as well as community opposition to confined animal feeding operations. The book concludes by exploring alternatives to North America's model of industrialized meat production.

Benefits:

  • This case study draws on a rich corpus of ethnographic material, including long-term fieldwork, extensive participant observation, and in-depth interviews, in several communities for over more than 15 years.
  • The book is well illustrated, rich in detail, and highly readable. It has avoided the ponderous prose that so often characterizes academic writing and many case studies.
  • The text traces the historical development of the industrialization of beef, poultry, and pork production and processing in the United States and Canada, and concludes with a careful and highly informed look at possible alternatives and different 'futures'.
  • The industrialization of agriculture and its impact on communities is a topic of growing concern to the broad reading public. It complements and expands on the best-selling text by Eric Schlosser, Fast "Food Nation" (one of the top ten most popular books on college campuses today). Schlosser has written the foreword that accompanies the text.
