Do Childfree People Have Better Sex? A Feminist’s Journey in the Childfree Movement by Verena Brunschweiger is now available: https://lanternpm.org/book/do-childfree-people-have-better-sex/

The latest book by well-known, progressive activist Verena Brunschweiger on the growing childfree movement, its many positive benefits, and the conventional resistance to adopting this lifestyle.

Verena Brunschweiger is no stranger to controversy. In her latest book, Do Childfree People Have Better Sex?, our provocateur tackles this increasingly popular topic and its many ramifications, head-on. After conveying her own personal story, Brunschweiger expounds with data in hand on the implications of having children: the ecological and environmental consequences, feminism, politics, and philosophical disputation. She explores current issues including over-population and the environment, animal welfare, abortion and reproductive rights, politics, and anti-natalism. Brunschweiger posits women have the right to be happy and, if they choose to, feel comfortable rejecting the societal conventional pressure of having children. Our author suggests that women and their partners will have more freedom and enjoyment if they are childfree. Brunschweiger doesn’t want humanity to go extinct as some may suggest; rather, she wants the earth and its inhabitants to have an enjoyable and sustainable future.

It's time for society to go vegan - this book says why

Check out this review of Vegan Voices (https://lanternpm.org/book/vegan-voices/) by Richard Schwartz, author of Vegan Revolution (https://lanternpm.org/book/vegan-revolution/).

He writes, "At this critical time, when the world faces a devastating pandemic, a looming climate catastrophe, an epidemic of diet-related diseases and shortages of water and other resources, Vegan Voices has the potential to help shift our imperiled planet onto a sustainable path.

Thus, it is essential that its powerful messages be widely read and heeded. If you are a vegan or have a basically plant-based diet, read it and be inspired. If you have not yet adopted such a diet, read it and learn in a very reader-friendly way how you can improve your health, bring more compassion into the world and help leave a decent, habitable, environmentally sustainable world for future generations."

In view of the severity of current climate and other environmental threats, there may be in the future either a largely vegan world or a largely destroyed world.

Stories Rabbits Tell

Stories Rabbits Tell: A Natural and Cultural History of a Misunderstood Creature by Susan E. Davis and Margo DeMello is now available as an ebook.

Revered as a symbol of fertility, sexuality, purity and childhood, beloved as a children’s pet and widely represented in the myths, art and collectibles of almost every culture, the rabbit is one of the most popular animals known to humans. Ironically, it has also been one of the most misunderstood and abused. Indeed, the rabbit is the only animal that our culture adores as a pet, idolizes as a storybook hero and slaughters for commercial purposes.

Stories Rabbits Tell takes a comprehensive look at the rabbit as a wild animal, ancient symbol, pop culture icon, commercial “product” and domesticated pet. In so doing, the book explores how one species can be simultaneously adored as a symbol of childhood (think Peter Rabbit), revered as a symbol of female sexuality (e.g., Playboy Bunnies), dismissed as a “dumb bunny” in domesticity and loathed as a pest in the wild. The authors counter these stereotypes with engaging analyses of real rabbit behavior, drawn both from the authors’ own experience and from academic studies, and place those behaviors in the context of current debates about animal consciousness. In a detailed investigative section, the authors also describe conditions in the rabbit meat, fur, pet and vivisection industries, and raise important questions about the ethics of treating rabbits as we do.

The first book of its kind, Stories Rabbits Tell provides invaluable information and insight into the life and history of an animal whom many love, but whom most of us barely know. As such, it is a key addition to the current thinking on animal emotions, intelligences and welfare, and the way that human perceptions influence the treatment of individual species.

Karavan Kitchen by Soraya Beheshti is now available: https://lanternpm.org/book/karavan-kitchen/

Cooking is the closest thing we have to a universal ritual experience. It is sacred, enchanting, and transformative. Heritage cooking is history, chemistry, meditation, worship, and health in one sacramental act. All over the world, men and women brign the fruits of their labors to the table.

Karavan Kitchen is a beautifully illustrated cookbook packed with mouth-watering recipes for a wide range of vegan dishes throughout the Middle East—whether salads, mezze plates, main courses, the enormous variety of grains, sweet desserts, and beverages. Karavan Kitchen is also an evocative introduction to the many diverse cultures of the region and an eye-opening and compelling examination of the refugee crises caused by the conflicts in Syria, Libya, Yemen, and Somalia. Soraya Beheshti demonstrates how food is often the central connection many refugees have to their native countries and a means of creating community even when forced to live in difficult conditions many miles from home.

We stand with our colleague and all beings in Ukraine that desire to be free from tyranny and oppression.

Starting in March of 2022, Lantern has decided to host fundraisers aligned with our values. Each campaign will benefit a specific cause or non-profit organization and include book giveaways.

As part of Lantern’s emergency response to help Ukraine, we have set up a fundraising campaign supporting three organizations: UNWLA - Ukrainian National Women's League of America, Inc., Восток SOS, and UAnimals. 100% of all donations made through our website will go to these organizations currently providing critical support in Ukraine.

Every week, Lantern will give away one of our books to two donors selected at random. This week's book giveaway is Vegan Voices (https://bit.ly/36zafaT). We thank our community for generous support and hope you will consider contributing here: https://bit.ly/3qCpSVF.

Food for Thought: Planetary Healing Begins on Our Plate by Camila Perussello, PhD is now available: lanternpm.org/food-for-thought
This book seeks to make you aware of your power to shape industry and society. Perussello invites you to question who really benefits from our current food system through a detailed, science-based analysis of food production and consumption. The author discusses how this industry goes well beyond the blatant violence against non-human animals. She posits that animal agriculture is creating a world of disease, suffering and despair, injustice, and environmental depletion. She provides an accessible, science-based analysis of animal food production from the perspective of a Food Process Engineer, as well as insightful discussions on the many implications of our diet. Each section is supported by powerful photographs taken by acclaimed Animal Equality undercover investigators in animal farms worldwide. She elaborates on the relationship between microbial pathogens (including COVID-19), antibiotic resistance, and the consumption of animal products. Food for Thought is ultimately an invitation to change society making it an essential and timely resource for everyone.

In a dozen scholarly and personal essays on the intersections of the prison-industrial complex, industrial animal agriculture, and capitalism, Vegan Entanglements examines the ways human and animal bodies are controlled, manipulated, and sectioned within a system that commodifies labor, production, and individual beings for profit.

Vegan Geographies: Spaces Beyond Violence, Ethics Beyond Speciesism edited by Paul Hodge, Andrew McGregor, Simon Springer, Ophélie Véron, and Richard J. White is now available: https://lanternpm.org/book/vegan-geographies/

Veganism as an ethics and a practice has a recorded history dating back to Antiquity. Yet, it is only recently that researchers have begun the process of formalizing the study of veganism. Whereas occasional publications have recently emerged from sociology, history, philosophy, cultural studies, or critical animal studies, a comprehensive geographical analysis is missing. Until now. In fourteen chapters from a diverse group of scholars and living practitioners, Vegan Geographies looks across space and scale, exploring the appropriateness of vegan ethics among diverse social and cultural groups, and within the midst of broader neoliberal economic and political frameworks that seek to commodify and marketize the movement. Vegan Geographies fundamentally challenges outdated but still dominant human–nature dualisms that underpin widespread suffering and ecological degradation, providing practical and accessible pathways for people interested in challenging contemporary systems and working collectively toward less destructive worlds.

It was reading about veganism on a plane 20 years ago that inspired me to go from vegetarian to vegan and then from vegan to activist. Reading this book on a plane today has inspired me to do more to dismantle racism in the animal protection movement. Each essay leaves you feeling empowered, with specific steps to take to make the movement stronger and more equitable. Thank you to Encompass for doing the important work of making this movement equitable and effective. Thanks to all the contributors who write with humility and bravery. And of course thx to Lantern Publishing & Media for publishing it!
