A presentation by Erik Marcus.

Every generation a book comes along that reshapes society${q}s attitudes toward food. Meat Market is such a book, and it offers the most compelling critique of animal agriculture yet set to print. In his talk Erik looks at the history of animal agriculture and charts the decline of its ethical standards. Despite the worsening plight of animals, his message is hopeful and optimistic. He offers strategies for meat-lovers and vegetarians alike to combat cruelty to animals. He also shows how easy it is to fill the diet with delicious, healthy, and humanely produced foods.

Erik Marcus is one of America${q}s leading writers on animal agriculture. He is the publisher of Vegan. com, a popular website devoted to animal protection and the vegan lifestyle. He also hosts "Erik${q}s Diner" -- a daily podcast talk show about food and farmed animals, available from Vegan.com. A highly regarded public speaker and author of Vegan: The New Ethics of Eating, Mr. Marcus lives outside of Boston, Massachusetts.
