A bold yet realistic vision of how technology and social change are creating a food system in which we no longer use animals to produce meat, dairy, or eggs.Michael Pollan's The Omnivore's Dilemma and Jonathan Safran Foer's Eating Animals brought widespread attention to the disturbing realities of factory farming. The End of Animal Farming pushes this conversation forward by outlining a strategic roadmap to a humane, ethical, and efficient food system in which slaughterhouses are obsoletewhere the tastes of even the most die-hard meat eater are satisfied by innovative food technologies like cultured meats and plant-based protein. Social scientist and animal advocate Jacy Reese analyzes the social forces leading us toward the downfall of animal agriculture, the technology making this change possible for the meat-hungry public, and the activism driving consumer demand for plant-based and cultured foods.Reese contextualizes the issue of factory farmingthe inhumane system of industrial far...

The End of Animal Farming: How Scientists, Entrepreneurs, and Activists Are Building an Animal-Free Food System Reviews
This is not your average vegan book. Despite the moral urgency of the issue of animal farming, Reese is thoughtful and reflective, not preachy. A fascinating book on the history and science of the animal welfare movement, with clear ideas for advocates and ordinary people to help end animal exploitation.
A must-read for anyone interested in the most recent developments and discussions on how we can bring about a world free of animal products. Sober and well-researched.
I am not now nor will I ever be a vegetarian . however, this book has merit. obviously if we are to conquer space we need a food supply that is portable, and easy to maintain. non animal alternatives will be necessary.
this book did not address or even mention any downside to abandoning animal farming. one downside is some of the ideas advocated in the book would lead to control of our food being concentrated in the hands of a few corporations. what types of pollution will be created? the conseq ...more
My expectations for this book were high. It did not deliver. The author completely lost me when he started talking about the sentience of bugs.
Full of inspiring ideas about the future of food system. Factory farming is outdated and no longer a logical solution to meeting the rising global food demands. This book sheds light on the transformation that is taking place.

As a YouTuber and promoter of science, and having been a vegan for more than 4 years, I have very much appreciated Jacy's book.
He shows that he took the painful job of going through the relevant scientific literature in order to deliver a book to the public which, I think, has been longed for.
I have been part of vegan groups, many of which I eventually had to distance myself from because, unfortunately, members very rapidly start associating with pseudoscientific movements, and supporting envi ...more
I received this book for free, and I want to start by saying that I believe in the current farming industry. This book is incredibly well researched and does analyze some important growing trends in society and agriculture. I think this is a must read for anyone who is interested in the food or agricultural industries. It is biased but still very informative. As I said earlier, I disagree that animal-free is the way to go, and many animal farms do care deeply for the animals that are their livel ...more
