CLEVELAND VEGAN BOOK CLUB
The Cleveland Vegan Book Club will discuss Making a Killing by Bob Torres on Friday, May 19th at 7 pm.
With a focus on labor, property, and the life of commodities, "Making a Killing" contains key insights into the broad nature of domination, power, and hierarchy. It explores the intersections between human and animal oppressions in relation to the exploitative dynamics of capitalism. Combining nuts-and-bolts Marxist political economy, a pluralistic anarchist critique, as well as a searing assessment of the animal rights movement, Bob Torres challenges conventional anti-capitalist thinking and convincingly advocates for the abolition of animals in industry and on the dinner plate.
Bob Torres is assistant professor of sociology at St. Lawrence University in Canton, NY, USA, where he teaches courses on social theory, globalization, political economy, and animal rights. Coauthor of the vegan how-to guide, Vegan Freak: Being Vegan in a Non-Vegan World, Bob also publishes scholarly literature on topics around globalization, food, and the social implications of technology
