Titel: The Pornography Of Meat
A provocative exploration of how women are literally treated like 'pieces of meat' in contemporary culture. 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 Pomography of Meat uncovers startling connections: Why pornography demonstrates such a fascination with slaughtering and hunting. Rear-entry poses in pornography, implying that women - especially women of colour - are like animals: insatiable. How meat advertising draws on X-rated images. Why at least one prominent animal-rights group is 'in bed' with pornographers.With 180 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 of farm animals, The Pornography of Meat shows exactly how harm parades as fun to others.
