This impressively large, gorgeous and awe-inspiring book will be found on the coffee-tables of those concerned with one of the most pressing ecological, ethical and social problems of our time. While the books makes a staggering visual and textual argument for a food revolution, the solutions offered only hint at the most logical and effective conclusion: veganism.  Erik Marcus’ contribution, ‘Dismantlement: A Movement to Topple Industrial Animal Agriculture‘ does offer one of the few vegan arguments in the book, but overwhelmingly, the conclusion sounds something like this:

“This does not mean we have to embrace a vegan society or renounce animal food products of all kinds. Yet somewhere along this path to reform, the general public’s perception of vegetarianism simply has to change. Meatless meals may one day become a more frequent choice in a significant number of households and school meal programs.”
