Ein seltsam verstörendes, hypnotisierendes Buch über eine Frau, die, laut ihrem Ehemann an Durchschnittlichkeit kaum zu übertreffen ist – bis sie eines Tages beschließt, kein Fleisch mehr zu essen... »Bevor meine Frau zur Vegetarierin wurde, hielt ich sie für nichts Besonderes. Bei unserer ersten Begegnung fand ich sie nicht einmal attraktiv. Mittelgroß, ein Topfschnitt, irgendwo zwischen kurz und lang, gelbliche unreine Haut, Schlupflider und dominante Wangenknochen. So fühlte ich mich weder von ihr angezogen noch abgestoßen und sah daher keinen Grund, sie nicht zu heiraten.« Yeong-Hye und ihr Ehemann sind ganz gewöhnliche Leute. Er geht beflissen seinem Bürojob nach und hegt keinerlei Ambitionen. Sie ist eine zwar leidenschaftslose, aber pflichtbewusste Hausfrau. Die angenehme Eintönigkeit ihrer Ehe wird jäh gefährdet, als Yeong-Hye beschließt, sich fortan ausschließlich vegetarisch zu ernähren und alle tierischen Produkte aus dem Haushalt entfernt. »Ich hatte einen Traum«, so ihre einzige Erklärung. Ein kleiner Akt der Unabhängigkeit, aber ein fataler, denn in einem Land wie Südkorea, in dem strenge soziale Normen herrschen, gilt der Vegetarismus als subversiv. Doch damit nicht genug. Bald nimmt Yeong-Hyes passive Rebellion immer groteskere Ausmaße an. Sie, die niemals gerne einen BH getragen hat, fängt an, sich in der Öffentlichkeit zu entblößen und von einem Leben als Pflanze zu träumen. Bis sich ihre gesamte Familie gegen sie wendet. Die Vegetarierin ist eine kafkaeske Geschichte in drei Akten über Scham und Begierde, Macht und Obsession sowie unsere zum Scheitern verurteilten Versuche, den Anderen zu verstehen, der ja doch, wie man selbst, Gefangener im eigenen Leib ist.

»Ich liebe Würste auch, aber ich esse sie nicht.« Jonathan Safran Foer in der Frankfurter Allgemeinen Sonntagszeitung »Tiere essen« ist ein leidenschaftliches Buch über die Frage, was wir essen und warum. Der hoch gelobte amerikanische Romancier und Bestsellerautor Jonathan Safran Foer hat ein aufrüttelndes Buch über Fleischkonsum und dessen Folgen geschrieben, das weltweit Furore macht und bei uns mit Spannung erwartet wird. Wie viele junge Menschen schwankte Jonathan Safran Foer lange zwischen Fleischgenuss und Vegetarismus hin und her. Als er Vater wurde und er und seine Frau überlegten, wie sie ihr Kind ernähren würden, bekamen seine Fragen eine neue Dringlichkeit: Warum essen wir Tiere? Würden wir sie auch essen, wenn wir wüssten, wo sie herkommen? Foer stürzt sich mit Leib und Seele in sein Thema. Er recherchiert auf eigene Faust, bricht nachts in Tierfarmen ein, konsultiert einschlägige Studien und spricht mit zahlreichen Akteuren und Experten. Vor allem aber geht er der Frage auf den Grund, was Essen für den Menschen bedeutet. Auch Foer kennt die trostspendende Kraft einer fleischhaltigen Lieblingsmahlzeit, die seit Generationen in einer Familie gekocht wird. In einer brillanten Synthese aus Philosophie, Literatur, Wissenschaft und eigenen Undercover-Reportagen bricht Foer in »Tiere essen« eine Lanze für eine bewusste Wahl. Er hinterfragt die Geschichten, die wir uns selbst erzählen, um unser Essverhalten zu rechtfertigen, und die dazu beitragen, dass wir der Wirklichkeit der Massentierhaltung und deren Konsequenzen nicht ins Auge sehen. »Tiere essen« besticht durch eine elegante Sprache, überraschende Denkfiguren und viel Humor. Foer zeigt ein großes Herz für menschliche Schwächen, lässt sich aber in seinem leidenschaftlichen Plädoyer für die Möglichkeiten ethischen Handelns nicht bremsen. Eine unverzichtbare Lektüre für jeden Menschen, der über sich und die Welt – und seinen Platz in ihr – nachdenkt. Mit einem eigens für die deutsche Ausgabe geschriebenen Vorwort von Jonathan Safran Foer. »Diese Geschichte begann nicht als ein Buch. Ich wollte nur wissen – für mich und für meine Familie – was Fleisch eigentlich ist. Wo kommt es her? Wie wird es produziert? Welche Folgen hat unser Fleischkonsum für die Wirtschaft, die Gesellschaft und unsere Umwelt? Gibt es Tiere, die man bedenkenlos essen kann? Gibt es Situationen, in denen der Verzicht auf Fleisch falsch ist? Warum essen wir kein Hundefleisch? Was als persönliche Untersuchung begann, wurde rasch sehr viel mehr als das ...« Jonathan Safran Foer Der Titel enthält eine vom Vegetarierbund Deutschlands (VEBU) zusammengestellte Übersicht zur Sachlage der Massentierhaltung in der Bundesrepublik.

The Rise of an American Reform Movement, 1817-1921

Vegetarianism has been practiced in the United States since the country's founding, yet the early years of the movement have been woefully misunderstood and understudied. Through the Civil War, the vegetarian movement focused on social and political reform, but by the late nineteenth century, the movement became a path for personal strength and success in a newly individualistic, consumption-driven economy. This development led to greater expansion and acceptance of vegetarianism in mainstream society. So argues Adam D. Shprintzen in his lively history of early American vegetarianism and social reform. From Bible Christians to Grahamites, the American Vegetarian Society to the Battle Creek Sanitarium, Shprintzen explores the diverse proponents of reform-motivated vegetarianism and explains how each of these groups used diet as a response to changing social and political conditions. By examining the advocates of vegetarianism, including institutions, organizations, activists, and publications, Shprintzen explores how an idea grew into a nationwide community united not only by diet but also by broader goals of social reform.

“Who in their right minds would ever want to be a vegetarian?” Sharalyn Pliler asked just months before she—accidentally—became one. A few days into a camping trip in the woods, she was amazed to experience that instead of getting weaker without meat, just the opposite happened—she felt more energetic, lighter and more clear-headed, needing to eat less than before while enjoying food even more, as if her taste buds had come alive. Reluctant to become a vegetarian but unable to argue with definitive direct experience, she had no choice but to begin the transition from familiar meat cookery to the unknown world of vegetarianism. Not many cookbooks are page-turners but with her light-hearted style, down-home sense of humor and master’s level writing skills, readers are carried effortlessly as she tells her story of awakening to the pleasures and techniques of vegetarianism. Once a cook in a vegetarian university kitchen, now with three decades of vegetarian experience, she seems to anticipate every question.

The Animal Rights Debate

Abolition or Regulation?

Author: Gary L. Francione,Robert Garner

Publisher: Columbia University Press

ISBN: 0231526695

Category: Nature

Page: 272

View: 7582

Gary L. Francione is a law professor and leading philosopher of animal rights theory. Robert Garner is a political theorist specializing in the philosophy and politics of animal protection. Francione maintains that we have no moral justification for using nonhumans and argues that because animals are property or economic commodities laws or industry practices requiring "humane" treatment will, as a general matter, fail to provide any meaningful level of protection. Garner favors a version of animal rights that focuses on eliminating animal suffering and adopts a protectionist approach, maintaining that although the traditional animal-welfare ethic is philosophically flawed, it can contribute strategically to the achievement of animal-rights ends. As they spar, Francione and Garner deconstruct the animal protection movement in the United States, the United Kingdom, Europe, and elsewhere, discussing the practices of such organizations as PETA, which joins with McDonald's and other animal users to "improve" the slaughter of animals. They also examine American and European laws and campaigns from both the rights and welfare perspectives, identifying weaknesses and strengths that give shape to future legislation and action.

Vegetarianism: A Guide for the Perplexed

The choice of whether or not to consume animals is more than merely a dietary one. It frequently reflects deep ethical commitments or religious convictions that serve as the bedrock of an entire lifestyle. Proponents of vegetarianism frequently infuriate nonvegetarians, who feel that they're being morally condemned because of what they choose to eat. Vegetarians are frequently infuriated by what they consider to be the nonvegetarians' disregard for the environment and animal-suffering. Vegetarianism: A Guide for the Perplexed offers a much needed survey of the different arguments offered by ethical vegetarians and their critics. In a rigorous but accessible manner, the author scrutinizes the strengths and weaknesses of arguments in defense of vegetarianism based on compassion, rights, interests, eco-feminism, environmentalism, anthrocentrism, and religion. Authors examined include Peter Singer, Tom Regan, Carol J. Adams, and Kathryn Paxton George. As the global climate crisis worsens, population increases, and fossil fuels disappear, ethical and public policy questions about the ethics of diet will become ever more urgent. This book is a useful resource for thinking through the questions.
