Just Released: A Vegan History 1944-2010

My latest book just hit Amazon.com this morning: A Vegan History: 1944-2010. It’s a short book—figure about fifty pages—and Amazon is selling it in Kindle format for just $2.99. Don’t have a Kindle? You can download free Kindle software to read the book on iPads, iPhones, PCs, Macs, Androids, Blackberries, and Windows Phone 7.

I took on this project for a few reasons:

  • Nobody has ever written a history of veganism that focuses on the ground gained over the past few decades. The story of how veganism rose from the fringes to the mainstream  is surprisingly interesting and useful.
  • I believe that people who read this book will gain new insights into activism, and feel inspired to get involved in especially effective ways.
  • Activists in countries with no real vegan presence will benefit by learning how veganism established a foothold in the United States.

Did I mention it’s just $2.99? I think you’ll get a lot out of it.
