About this title:

Synopsis: This book utilizes critical discourse analysis to illuminate the ways in which one of the largest agribusinesses in operation, Tyson Foods, disguises their actions whilst simultaneously presenting the image of a benign, good corporate citizen. Schally unveils how the discourses employed by Tyson gain legitimacy by drawing on and aligning with larger cultural discourses that are often taken for granted and not adequately scrutinised. This original research, situated at the intersection of green and cultural criminologies, contributes to these current perspectives as well as to the burgeoning social harm approach within criminology. 
A bold and engaging study, this book will be indispensable for students and scholars of green criminology, corporate crime, animals and society, and environmental sociology, as well as environmental and animal rights activists.

Review: “A piquant account of very insalubrious practices! Schally has made an important contribution to green cultural criminology with her trenchant critique of corporate environmental harm.” (Avi Brisman, Associate Professor, School of Justice Studies, College of Justice and Safety, Eastern Kentucky University, USA)

“This book provides a damning indictment of how animal harm is legitimized within contemporary agricultural production in the United States. Through analysis of language and corporate messages Schally provides a fascinating insight into the different ways in which animal harm is hidden, normalised and legalised within the animal product industry. This book is an important contribution to green criminology's species justice literature.” (Angus Nurse, Associate Professor, Department of Criminology and Sociology, Middlesex University, UK)
