Melanie Joy, PhD '03 Releases New Book

Melanie Joy, PhD '03 has just published Why We Love Dogs, Eat Pigs, and Wear Cows

Available at

"Why We Love Dogs, Eat Pigs, and Wear Cows is an eye-opening account of a little-questioned article of faith in our culture: the idea that it is normal to befriend some animals while exploiting others. A step-by-step analysis of a cultural blind spot, it is a powerful blend of reason, compassion, and psychological insight. Please have the courage to challenge mental habits and be curious. This book is a frank and friendly guide that can be your ally in understanding yourself, your culture – and your choices."
Linda Riebel, PhD '81, Saybrook Alumna and Faculty Member
