Description 1 online resource.
Summary The Ecological Hoofprint is a rigorous and eye-opening explanation of how industrial livestock production is driving the exploding global consumption of meat, which is implicated in momentous but greatly under-appreciated problems. Tony Weis, author of the ground-breaking The Global Food Economy, shows what this means for the health of the planet, how it contributes to worsening human inequality, and how it constitutes a profound but invisible aspect of the violence of everyday life.
Contents Contextualizing the hoofprint: global environmental change and inequality -- The uneven geography of meat -- The industrial grain-oilseed-livestock complex -- Confronting the hoofprint: towards a sustainable, just, and humane world.
