In this accessible and provocative essay collection, sisters Aph and Syl Ko provide new theoretical frameworks on race, advocacy for nonhuman animals, and feminism.

Drawing on her own experiences as a disabled person, a disability activist, and an animal advocate, author Sunaura Taylor persuades us to think deeply, and sometimes uncomfortably, about what divides the human from the animal, and the disabled from the abled. Beasts of Burden suggests that issues of disability and animal justice—which have heretofore primarily been presented in opposition—are in fact deeply entangled.
A national best-seller that was cited by The New York Times as a key reason for the popular rise of veganism among African Americans, By Any Greens Necessary was the first vegan diet book for Black women. In it, McQuirter combines the story of her personal journey with helpful tools such as recipes, menu ideas, and shopping lists.

Part memoir and part investigative report, Eating Animals is the groundbreaking moral examination of vegetarianism, farming, and the food we eat every day that inspired the documentary of the same name. Faced with the prospect of being unable to explain why we eat some animals and not others, Foer set out to explore the origins of many eating traditions and the fictions involved with creating them.
Nearly all of the meat, eggs, and dairy we eat comes from the industrial system known as “factory farming.” This system destroys our environment and harms public health, and never before has humankind caused more suffering. Based on the bestselling book by Jonathan Safran Foer, narrated by producer Natalie Portman, and directed and produced by Christopher Quinn (GOD GREW TIRED OF US), Eating Animals spotlights the heroic farmers, whistleblowers, and innovators who are standing up, against all odds, to fight this system and provide a new way forward.
Lori Gruen argues that rather than focusing on animal “rights,” we ought to work to make our relationships with animals right by empathetically responding to their needs, interests, desires, vulnerabilities, hopes, and unique perspectives. She describes entangled empathy as a type of caring perception focused on attending to another’s experience of well-being.

India imposes criminal penalties for cow slaughter, based on a Hindu ethic of revering the cow as sacred. And yet India is among the world’s leading producers of beef, leather, and milk. What is behind this seeming contradiction? Narayanan argues that bovine motherhood is simultaneously capitalized for dairy production and weaponized by Hindu nationalists to oppress Muslims and Dalits. Using ethnographic and empirical data gathered across India, this book reveals the harms caused to buffaloes, cows, bulls, and calves in dairying, and the racialized labor required to obscure such violence.
In this beautiful cookbook filled with stories, tips, tricks, and striking four-color photography, Georgina Hayden looks to Greece, Cyprus, and beyond to share delicious, almost entirely natural dishes. Whether you’re vegan, vegetarian, or simply interested in plant-based eating, you will enjoy these flavor-packed foods which draw from the tradition of nistisima, a Greek word that translates to Lenten, or fasting–often used in relation to animal products. Georgian Hayden explores the history and culture of nistisima to introduce home cooks to this new kind of vegan cooking which has been honed over centuries of religious practice. From bread to salads, dips, and pickles, to harvest cooking with seasonal vegetables, to cakes, puddings, and sweets, Nistisima features recipes for smokey red pepper and walnut flatbread; roast tomato, orzo, and rocket salad with roasted garlic dressing; fresh coriander and olive potatoes; broadbean falafel; and more nutritious, simple dishes more centered around Earth’s bounty.
A must-have for every plant-focused cookbook shelf, Nistisima is an exciting approach to modern, environmentally equitable vegan cooking influenced by a celebrated tradition.

Edgar Castrejón went vegan as a college student when he realized that following a plant-based diet made him feel better, but he worried he would no longer fit in back at the table with his family. As a proud first-generation Mexican American growing up in Oakland, Edgar had spent countless hours with his mom, aunts, and grandmother in the kitchen, where family recipes were passed down through “las manos mágicas.” So Edgar began creating healthier, meatless variations on the dishes he grew up cooking and eating.
Provecho features one hundred of Edgar’s ingenious vegan recipes that honor the traditional, often meat-heavy classics of Mexican and Latin American culture while cooking with compassion. Many take thirty minutes or less, rely on readily accessible ingredients, and feature Salvadoran and Colombian influences. And they’re all organized by how meals are approached in Edgar’s family.
With Provecho, Edgar invites you to discover a whole new way to enjoy the flavors he has loved his entire life—and still wakes up craving every day.
Race Matters, Animal Matters challenges one of the grand narratives of African American studies: that African Americans rejected racist associations of blackness and animality through a disassociation from animality. Analyzing canonical texts written by Frederick Douglass, Charles Chesnutt, Ida B. Wells, and James Weldon Johnson alongside slaughterhouse lithographs, hunting photography, and sheep “husbandry” manuals, Lindgren Johnson argues instead for a critical African American tradition that at pivotal moments reconsiders and recuperates discourses of animality weaponized against both African Americans and animals. Johnson articulates a theory of “fugitive humanism” in which these texts flee both white and human exceptionalism.
In a scintillating combination of critical race theory, social commentary, veganism, and gender analysis, media studies scholar Aph Ko offers a compelling vision of a reimagined social justice movement marked by a deconstruction of the conceptual framework that keeps activists siloed. Through a subtle and extended examination of Jordan Peele’s hit 2017 movie Get Out, Ko shows the many ways that white supremacist notions of animality and race exist through the consumption and exploitation of flesh.
Through straightforward and fascinating stories of women engaged with animal activism, Sister Species: Women, Animals, and Social Justice explains the complex interconnections of speciesism, sexism, racism, and homophobia.
