Synopsis: The CAFO Reader is possibly the most powerful indictment of factory farming ever compiled, with essays from 30 of the world's leading experts. It also offers a vision for a food system that leaves behind the horrific 20th century model of Concentrated Animal Feeding Operations.

The CAFO Reader brings the tragic world of industrial food production into sharp focus with essays on every facet of factory farming: health, environment, animal welfare, labor, politics, economics, and so on. This affordable reader is a companion book to the larger photo-essay volume, CAFO: The Tragedy of Industrial Animal Factories. It is sure to become a relied-upon resource for activists, food policy makers, academics, the media and the general public for many years. This project is a follow-up to the highly successful project Fatal Harvest, published in 2002. It is being supported by an extensive outreach campaign with events around the country.

From the Back Cover: The CAFO Reader: The Tragedy of Industrial Animal Factories provides an unprecedented overview of concentrated animal feeding operations -- aka CAFOs -- where increasing amounts of the world's meat, milk, eggs, and seafood are produced. The rise of the CAFO industry around the world has become one of the most pressing issues of our time. The intensive concentration of animals in such crammed and filthy conditions dependent on antibiotic medicines and steady streams of subsidized industrial feeds poses moral and ethical concerns for all of us. Featuring more than thirty essays by today's leading thinkers on food and agriculture, The CAFO Reader is a behind-the-scenes journey into the dismal world of animal factory farming. It also offers a compelling vision for a healthier animal food system: one that is humane, sound for farmers and communities, and safer for consumers and the environment."Factory farming isn't just killing: It is negation, a complete denial of the animal as a living being with his or her own needs and nature. It is not the worst evil we can do, but it is the worst evil we can do to them. It confronts us with the animal equivalent of Abraham Lincoln's condemnation of human slavery: 'If slavery is not wrong, nothing is wrong.'" -- Matthew Scully, Dominion
