"In this landmark work of animal rights activism, Carol J. Adams - the bestselling author of The Sexual Politics of Meat - explores the intersections and common causes of feminism and the defense of animals. Neither Man Nor Beast explores the common link between cultural attitudes to women and animals in modern Western culture that have enabled the systematic exploitation of both. A vivid work that takes in environmental ethics, theological perspectives and feminist theory, the Bloomsbury Revelations edition includes a new foreword by the author and new images illustrating the continuing relevance of the book today."--Bloomsbury Publishing
Animals and women : feminist theoretical explorations( Book )

15 editions published between 1995 and 2009 in English and held by 669 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Animals and Women is a collection of pioneering essays that explores the theoretical connections between feminism and animal defense. Offering a feminist perspective on the status of animals, this unique volume argues persuasively that both the social construction and oppressions of women are inextricably connected to the ways in which we comprehend and abuse other species. Furthermore, it demonstrates that such a focus does not distract from the struggle for women's rights, but rather contributes to it. This wide-ranging multidisciplinary anthology presents original material from scholars in a variety of fields, as well as a rare, early article by Virginia Woolf. Exploring the leading edge of the species/gender boundary, it addresses such issues as the relationship between abortion rights and animal rights, the connection between woman-battering and animal abuse, and the speciesist basis for much sexist language. Also considered are the ways in which animals have been regarded by science, literature, and the environmentalist movement. A striking meditation on women and wolves is presented, as is an examination of sexual harassment and the taxonomy of hunters and hunting. Finally, this compelling collection suggests that the subordination and degradation of women is a prototype for other forms of abuse, and that to deny this connection is to participate in the continued mistreatment of animals and women. -- Publisher description
The pornography of meat by Carol J Adams( Book )

18 editions published between 2003 and 2020 in English and held by 551 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"How does someone become a piece of meat? Carol J. Adams answers this question in this provocative book by uncovering hidden meanings in the culture around us. From advertisements to T-shirts, from billboards to menus, from matchbook covers to comics, images of women and animals are merged - with devastating consequences." "Like The Sexual Politics of Meat, which has been published in two editions, The Pornography of Meat uncovers startling connections: why pornography demonstrates such a fascination with slaughtering and hunting; fixations on women's body parts expressed through ads for the breasts, legs, and thighs of chickens and turkeys; animals to be eaten presented in seductive poses and sexy clothing; back-entry poses in pornography, implying that women - especially women of color - are like animals: insatiable; how meat advertising draws on X-rated images; and why at least one prominent animal-rights group is actually "in bed" with pornographers." "With more than two hundred illustrations, this book establishes why Adams's slide show, upon which The Pornography of Meat is based, is so popular on college campuses and is reviled by the groups she takes on with insight and passion. From the rise of chain steakhouses to the language of the hunt, from the halls of government to the practice of artificial insemination on farm animals, The Pornography of Meat shows exactly how harm to others parades as fun."--Jacket

Violence against women and children : a Christian theological sourcebook( Book )

5 editions published between 1995 and 1998 in English and held by 435 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Violence against women and children has reached epidemic proportions, harming thousands of individuals each year. Victims as well as perpetrators turn to their pastors for help; pastors turn to their seminaries and as, "Why didn't you prepareme to deal with these all-too-common problems?" With this path-breaking anthology, Adams and Fortune assert the need for a comprehensive examination of sexual and domestic violence within Christian theological education. The primary aim of this substantive volume is to prepare more adequately those who minister directly with victims and perpetrators. How have scriptural interpretation and theological and pastoral conceptions of God, suffering, and forgiveness affected victims and perpetrators? Can the Christian faith provide a source that supports healing for victims and survivors, and accountability for the abusers? These are difficult and disturbing questions that both scholars and pastors need to answer

This is followed by contributions from leading theorists and activists on how our emotions and embodiment can and must inform our relationships with the more than human world.

Throughout the book, the authors engage with intersections of gender and gender non-conformity, race, sexuality, disability, and species. The result is a new up-to-date resource for students and teachers of animal studies, environmental studies, feminist/gender studies, and practical ethics."--Publisher's description

The burger, long the All-American meal, is undergoing an identity crisis.

Protest kitchen : fight injustice, save the planet, and fuel your resistance one meal at a time by Carol J Adams( Book )

6 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 140 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Protest Kitchen is an empowering guide to the food and lifestyle choices anyone can make for positive change in the face of the profound challenges of our time. Our food choices have much more of an impact than most people imagine. They not only affect our personal health and the environment, but are also tied to issues of justice, misogyny, national security, and human rights. Protest Kitchen is the first book to explore the ways in which a more plant-based diet challenges regressive politics and fuels the resistance. A provocative and practical resource for hope and healing, Protest Kitchen, features over 50 vegan recipes (with alternatives for "aspiring vegans") along with practical daily actions such as: Substitute cow's milk in your coffee and cereal for any of a variety of delicious non-dairy milks. This will help lower the release of methane gas that contributes to global warming Use a smartphone app when buying chocolate to avoid supporting African farmers who use child-labor, even child slavery, to supply cacao beans to the food industry Make your own cleaning supplies and wood polish; it's frugal and avoids reliance on products that may be tested on animals"--
