Description:

"He's my kinda man."-Sarah Kramer, co-author of How it all Vegan Suggest to the average leftist that animals should be part of broader liberation struggles, and-once they stop laughing-you'll find yourself casually dismissed. Starting from this skepticism regarding animal liberation, Bob Torres draws broadly upon Left theory to show how human oppression and animal oppression are intertwined through the exploitative dynamics of capitalism. With a focus on labor, property, and the life of commodities, Making a Killing contains key insights on the nature of domination, power, and hierarchy, and argues for a critical social theory that understands the human domination of nature in terms of the domination of human by human. An eye-opener for readers concerned with progressive politics, animal welfare-or both. Concluding with an analysis of the political praxis of veganism, the book puts forth an abolitionist theory of animal rights that challenges thinking both within the broader Left and the animal rights movement. Bob Torres is assistant professor of sociology at St. Lawrence University, received his PhD from Cornell University, and is co-author of Vegan Freak: Being Vegan in a Non-Vegan World. His writings have appeared in Critical Sociology, Journal of Latinos and Education, International Journal of Occupational and Environmental Health, and Satya magazine.
