Produktbeschreibungen

Pressestimmen

"As Eisnitz convincingly shows, the meat industry is indifferent to animal suffering, exploitative of its workers, and liable to produce a product that is riddled with dangerous bacteria. Whether you eat meat or not — if you care about humans or animals — this book is a must read."
Peter Singer, Princeton University
Author of In Defense of Animals and Animal Liberation

"This book penetrates the veil of psychic numbing that keeps us oblivious to the real truth behind modern meat. If you want to remain a prisoner of your own ignorance, don't read it. It will make you aware. It will wake you up. It will change your life." ."
John Robbins, Founder of the EarthSave Foundation
Author of Diet for a New America

Synopsis

"Slaughterhouse" is the first book of its kind to explore the impact that unprecedented changes in the meatpacking industry over the last twenty-five years - particularly industry consolidation, increased line speeds, and deregulation - have had on workers, animals, and consumers. It is also the first time ever that workers have spoken publicly about what's really taking place behind the closed doors of America's slaughterhouses. In this new paperback edition, author Gail A Eisnitz brings the story up-to-date since the book's original publication. She describes the ongoing efforts by the Humane Farming Association to improve conditions in the meatpacking industry, media exposes that have prompted reforms resulting in multi-million dollar appropriations by Congress to try to enforce federal inspection laws, and a favourable decision by the Supreme Court to block construction of what was slated to be one of the largest hog factory farms in the country. Nonetheless, Eisnitz makes it clear that abuses continue and much work still needs to be done.

Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Ms. Eisnitz is frank and candid in her exposure of the uglier side of factory farming. Slaughter of live animals is never pretty, but in many of the USDA supervised plants, the conditions are unbelievably cruel and digustingly filthy. The workers are exploited, placed in harm's way, and are treated little better than the animals they have to process. The animals themselves meet terribly slow deaths when stun bolts fail and stick pit knives don't cut deep enough to allow them to bleed to death before skinning and gutting. And if the cruelty isn't enough to grab you, wait until you read about the offal blocked drains that flood slaughterhouse floors with blood and fecal material. Wait until you read about manure being classified as a "cosmetic defect" that can simply be rinsed off and the meat passed off as USDA select to an unsuspecting public. This book will turn your stomach and make you angry.
You have probably already read many of the reviews and a majority of them come from vegans and vegetarians. Well, I'm not one of them. I raise meat animals and I eat meat. This book is important to me because I believe that Americans have a right to eat meat and not worry about it killing them with E. coli or Clostridia infections. I believe Americans should be able to believe that the USDA seal means the meat is safe and was killed in a humane fashion. Right now the American meat eating public is being betrayed by the USDA and "Slaughterhouse" details this with painstaking research and first-hand accounts.
"Slaughterhouse" is graphic and readers should expect it to be disturbing. But it is also very, very accurate. I've toured several slaughterhouses myself and found conditions similar to what Ms. Eisnitz has described.

Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Slaughterhouse explodes the popular image of obscure factories that turn dumb livestock into sterile, cellophane-wrapped food in the meat display case. The testimony of dozens of slaughterhouse workers and USDA inspectors pulls the curtain on abominable hellholes, where the last minutes of innocent, feeling, intelligent horses, cows, pigs, and chickens are turned into interminable agony.
The agony starts when the animals are hauled over long distances under extreme crowding and harsh temperatures. And if the animals refuse to wait quietly to ther deaths. Some will beat the animals with a lead pipe. It's really scary and thrilling, somehow disturbing though.
You will realize that safety is a major problem for workers who operate sharp instruments standing on a floor slippery with blood and gore, surrounded by conscious animals kicking for their lives, and pressed by a speeding slaughter line. Yes, indeed it's the most hazardous job in America.
So Slaughterhouse mainly focuses on animal cruelty and worker safety, but it also addresses the issues of consumer health, one of them is E. Coli (Escherichia Coli, causes infections including meningitis, septicaemia, urinary tract infections and intestinal infections etc).
We just don't know how animals suffer from cruelty and now we've to be brave enough to face the reality. The closing statement just make me in awe "now you know, and you can help end these atrocities". Let's applaud Gail for having the compassion. Appaling, informative and insightful. It's certainly a real eye-opener. This just make us concern about slaughthouses in our own countries, maybe these are happening to us too, who knows.
