The Heretic's Feast : A History of Vegetarianism
by Colin Spencer 5/96

Colin Spencer describes the religious, philosophical, and social aspects of vegetarianism, introducing such prominent and often colorful practitioners as Pythagoras, Ovid, Leonardo da Vinci, Sir Thomas More, Percy Bysshe Shelley, Benjamin Franklin, Thomas Paine, Leo Tolstoy, George Bernard Shaw, Gandhi, and Hitler.The meatless diet has been around for as long as people have.

Animal slaughter and the eating of animal flesh has been a subject of both horror and religious prohibition since mankind became a thinking being. In fact, in the Garden of Eden, Adam and Eve did not eat meat and the lamb
was safe with the lion. It was distressing to learn of the Christian Church's
prosecution of vegetarians
! This book follows vegetarianism from early man,
through Greek, Indian, and Christian times, onward into the Enlightenment and the present day. An absolute must-read for vegetarians wanting to learn about their illustrious philosophical ancestors!

Ethical Vegetarianism : From Pythagoras to Peter Singer
by Kerry S. Walters (Editor), Lisa Portmess (Editor) 1/99 69662

Millions of people in the United States are vegetarians, and the numbers are growing. Many choose a vegetarian lifestyle for reasons of health, but even more do so because of moral and ecological concerns about human treatment of animals, environmental well-being, economic injustice, and individual integrity.

Walters and Portmess have done is to bring together important arguments
about the use of animal flesh as human food from classical writers to the present day. The editors include a very useful appendix of anti-vegetarian writings, which is a useful resource for the inevitable arguments that meat-eaters offer vegetarians. This book is a great contribution to telling the truth about vegetarian history as well as a fine collection of compassionate, ethical, and important voices.
