PRISONED CHICKENS, POISONED EGGS: AN INSIDE LOOK AT THE MODERN POULTRY INDUSTRY – Karen Davis, PhD, New Revised Edition, Book Publishing Company, 2009
“At the heart of this story is the chicken, to whom this book is dedicated, and on whose side, and at whose side, I remain steadfast.” – Karen Davis, President & Founder of United Poultry Concerns, author of Prisoned Chickens, Poisoned Eggs
The 1996 edition of Prisoned Chickens, Poisoned Eggs, by UPC President Karen Davis, exposed modern poultry practices, revealing the tragedy chickens endure through the lens of a brutal and remorseless industry. The book acted as a catalyst within the animal advocacy movement. The New Revised Edition of Prisoned Chickens, Poisoned Eggs looks at a world in which avian influenza, food poisoning, global warming, genetic engineering, and the expansion of poultry production and consumption are careening to an unsustainable point. Read the compelling argument for adopting a compassionate, plant-based cuisine as an alternative to the warfare waged on defenseless chickens. Forthcoming in early 2009 by the Book Publishing Company.
