The Pornography of Meat

by Carol J. Adams
£16.99   paperback  Lantern Books (2016)

The Pornography of Meat by Carol J. Adams How does someone become a piece of meat? Carol J. Adams answers this question in this provocative book by finding hidden meanings in the culture around us.

From advertisements to T-shirts, from billboards to menus, from matchbook covers to comics, images of women and animals are merged - with devastating consequences. Like her groundbreaking The Sexual Politics of Meat, which has been published in two editions, The Pornography of Meat uncovers startling connections:

* Why pornography demonstrates such a fascination with slaughtering and hunting
* Fixations on women's body parts expressed through ads for the breasts, legs, and thighs of chickens and turkeys
* Animals to be eaten as meat presented in seductive poses and sexy clothing
* Back-entry poses in pornography, implying that women - especially women of color - are like animals: insatiable
* How meat advertising draws on X-rated images
* Why at least one prominent animal-rights group is actually "in bed" with pornographers.

With 200 illustrations, this courageous and explosive book establishes why Adams's slide show, upon which The Pornography of Meat is based, is so popular on campuses across North America and is reviled by the groups she takes on with insight and passion.

From the rise of chain steakhouses to the language of the hunt, from the halls of government to the practice of artificial insemination on farm animals, The Pornography of Meat shows exactly how harm to others parades as fun.
