I have often enjoyed the classical murder mysteries from the 1920's, 30's, 40's and 50's for their nostalgic portrait of the cultures of those decades, but much of what comes across in these books is an unconscious transmission of the quality of the time.

Meanwhile, a warrior finds himself on a distant island, deserted save for hungry predators. As she asserted elsewhere in her discussion, we are indeed faced with a choice; will we be so addicted to the perceived benefits of our profligate usage of fossil fuels that, like the people who lived on the outskirts of Hitler's concentration camps, we don't notice the gathering clouds of noxious smoke that will eventually obliterate everything. The back cover is just as well made and embossed as well. —There she goes…as long as she cracks she holds. Sounds faster and easier than Moms. I would read more of his writings if I could find them.

to respect life, to treat animals with simple dignity and compassion.Somewhere along the way, something has gone wrong.In Dominion, we witness the annual convention of Safari Club International, an organization whose wealthier members will pay up to $20,000 to hunt an elephant, a lion or another animal, either abroad or in American "safari ranches," where the animals are fenced in pens. We attend the annual International Whaling Commission conference, where the skewed politics of the whaling industry come to light, and the focus is on developing more lethal, but not more merciful, methods of harvesting "living marine resources." And we visit a gargantuan American "factory farm," where animals are treated as mere product and raised in conditions of mass confinement, bred for passivity and bulk, inseminated and fed with machines, kept in tightly confined stalls for the entirety of their lives, and slaughtered in a way that maximizes profits and minimizes decency.Throughout Dominion, Scully counters the hypocritical arguments that attempt to excuse animal abuse: from those who argue that the Bible's message permits mankind to use animals as it pleases, to the hunter's argument that through hunting animal populations are controlled, to the popular and "scientifically proven" notions that animals cannot feel pain, experience no emotions, and are not conscious of their own lives.The result is eye opening, painful and infuriating, insightful and rewarding. Dominion is a plea for human benevolence and mercy, a scathing attack on those who would dismiss animal activists as mere sentimentalists, and a demand for reform from the government down to the individual. Matthew Scully has created a groundbreaking work, a book of lasting power and importance for all of us.
