Read full description of the books:
In Beyond Beef Jeremy Rifikin offers a scathing review on the multinational beef industry and cattle eating culture in the western world. This book however is not just some baseless rant; Rifkin uses logical arguments, sound facts and various supporting sources. He actually made an extremely sound argument that really swayed me (shockingly considering I am quite fond of cow). His use of evidence was so well done and strong it transformed a heavily biased topic into a logical sound book.
Rifkin Started by explaining the history of cattle culture and how humans and cows have been intertwined for many centuries. He discussed how they were once revered and treated like gods and sharply contrasted that to the way cattle are treated today using quotes from the Jungle. Rifkin then exposes some awful facts about the beef industry in America such as the USDAs lacking inspection standards.
He then shifts to the primary focus of his book, which is the heavy toll cows place on the environment, and the people of earth. How so much farmland is wasted to feed cows and the destruction of the rainforest caused for cattle production. He describes cows a “hoofed locust” and states the many ecological harms of cattle.
Beyond beef serves up a convincing argument on the high cost of cattle culture. From ecological damage to health effects Rifkin uses sound evidence and arguments to present his case. He ties in history, ecology, medicine, economics and philosophy to paint a vivid picture of the beef industry and its effect on mankind. This highly readable book produces a convincing argument on the harms of beef and is an all around enjoyable read.
