Praise

“Reese’s work shows his deep concern for animals and makes clear why others should share it.”
Kirkus Reviews

“Reese does a great job in inspiring his readers (and in making their mouths water) with the idea that a different, sustainable kind of meat is possible.”
Forbes

“Places the issue of factory farming in the context of human progress and presents compelling arguments on how we should deal with it today.”
—Steven Pinker, Johnstone Professor of Psychology, Harvard University, and author of The Better Angels of Our Nature and Enlightenment Now

“History has been marked by turning points like the invention of electricity and the advent of information technology. The End of Animal Farming persuasively argues that the next revolution will be a global transition to non-animal meat and milk. The animal-free food revolution will save the world, and this book is leading the way.”
—Maneka Gandhi, Indian Cabinet Minister for Women & Child Development

The End of Animal Farming makes an airtight case that the future is plant-based. It’s the perfect uplifting gift for your flexitarian, vegetarian, and vegan friends.”
—Dr. Michael Greger, author of How Not to Die

“In this important and riveting book, Jacy Reese proves that cool rationality and warm compassion aren’t opposites. In fact, they make a great team. Reese argues persuasively that factory farming is one of the great moral crises of our day—and he provides a useful road map for ending it.”
—A. J. Jacobs, author of The Year of Living Biblically

“Reese’s excellent book advances our understanding of an animal-free food system, including its environmental benefits. It is a valuable resource for both students and scholars interested in emerging technologies, social and psychological systems, and case studies. Reese’s writing is clear and accessible, making it perfect for undergraduate and graduate students, readers curious about the topic, and advocates interested in ensuring that their actions are effective.”
—Christopher Schlottmann, clinical professor of environmental studies at New York University

“Jacy Reese expertly integrates information and arguments from a wide range of sources to present a compelling and inspiring vision for how we can end animal farming—and the many harms it causes—once and for all. Highly recommended for anyone who cares about the future of this planet for humans and nonhumans alike.”
—Jeff Sebo, clinical assistant professor of environmental studies and director of the animal studies MA program at New York University

“Our food system causes suffering for literally trillions of animals, making animal farming one of the great moral issues of our time. Indeed, the extent of the problem is so great that it often feels intractable. Jacy Reese lays out a big-picture comprehensive assessment of the situation. He shows that history and current developments are on the side of moral progress. At the same time, he lays out concrete priorities and actionable items that will help society to move forward. For anyone who feels frustrated with our global food system, this book is a must read.”
—Joshua Tasoff, associate professor of economic sciences, Claremont Graduate University
