Though the word 'vegetarianism' was not coined until the mid--nineteenth century, the vegetarian diet has been around as long as man has. Vegetarians have included in their number: heretics, humanists, Hindus, Christian fundamentalists, radicals, agnostics, philosophers, founders of religion and even an Emperor. Not surprisingly vegetarians have often been discriminated against - sometimes tortured, even killed - for their beliefs. So the history of vegetarianism is also a history of dissidence and revolt. Colin Spencer's comprehensive book, reissued in paperback for the first time in fifteen years explores the psychology of abstention from flesh and attempts to discover why omnivorous humans at times voluntarily abstain from an available food. The result is a thorough work of scholarship, entertaining in places, horrifying in others. The breadth of Spencer's research is quite outstanding and makes for a truly erudite read. He begins in pre--history and ends in the present day.

Unlike previous books on the history of vegetarianism, Sins of the Flesh examines the history of vegetarianism in its ethical dimensions, from the origins of humanity through to the present. Full ethical consideration for animals resulting in the eschewing of flesh arose after the Aristotelian period in Greece and recurred in Ancient Rome, but then mostly disappeared for centuries. It was not until the turn of the nineteenth century that vegetarian thought was revived and enjoyed some success; it subsequently went into another period of decline that lasted through much of the twentieth century. The authority-questioning cultural revolution of the 1960s brought a fresh resurgence of vegetarian ethics that continues to the present day.

"Although New Zealand's economy has long depended on the bodies and infant milk of animals, this country also has a hidden history of vegetarianism. While some early vegetarians were concerned with health, spirituality, and purity, others took a broader view, speaking out on issues that included peace, feminism, animal rights, socialism, prison reform, and the environment. Yet others set up cafes, organised picnics, and wrote cookbooks. The Compassionate Contrarians uncovers the quirks of the vegetarian experience in a land of meat and dairy. More importantly, it acknowledges the hard work and courage of a group of idealists who dedicated their lives to creating a more just world for all sentient beings."--Publisher information.

Please Don't Eat the Animals: All the Reasons You Need to Be a Vegetarian is an exciting and provocative new book on the universal benefits of being a vegetarian. Authors Horsman and Flowers detail the many reasons for the burgeoning movement toward a plant-based diet in four short, interesting, easy-to-digest sections: Health Nowhere is the appeal of vegetarianism reflected more than in health issues. Scientists and doctors have begun drawing the connection between heavily meat-laden diets and the most serious health problems. Environment Livestock farming accounts for over half of both fresh water and ocean pollution. It significantly effects air pollution, deforestation especially of rain forests and the decimation of wildlife populations. Animal Welfare Animal welfare issues have gained prominence in recent years. Animal rights/ethics courses have emerged on university campuses, even in law schools. Please Don't Eat The Animals reveals the plight of animals on factory farms, a sad and troubling picture indeed. Religious and Spiritual Fresh and original, this section points to the fact that Christianity, Judaism, and Islam have strong injunctions against cruelty to animals. All Hindus are vegetarians. Mohammed said, "Whoever is kind to the creatures of God is kind to himself." And, according to the Buddha, "The eating of meat extinguishes the great seed of compassion."
