Product Details


“Dr. Melanie Joy is one of the most important theorists of how we rationalize cruelty. Here, she shows the way oppressive ideologies build upon each other by desensitizing us to the worth of other thinking, feeling beings. And more optimistically, she shows how we can rediscover that sensitivity and help others rediscover it as well.”
—Ezra Klein, Editor-at-Large, Vox, and host of The Ezra Klein Show
Powerarchy has the potential to revolutionize how we think about oppression and to empower our movements for social justice, animal rights, and environmental sustainability.”
—Moby, musician, author, and activist
“In Powerarchy, Melanie Joy—known for her theory that helped empower the animal rights movement—brings her analysis to a new level. She provides a powerful, new unifying theory to help mobilize and unite advocates working for justice for animals, humans, and the environment alike.”
—Leah Garcés, President, Mercy for Animals
“Powerarchy is a thought-provoking book that sheds light on the way we think about oppression and social justice.”
—Marianne Williamson, speaker, activist, and author of four #1 New York Times bestselling books
