Our books are integral tools for raising awareness and helping to create a more just and compassionate world.

Beyond Carnism was established two years after the 2010 release of Why We Love Dogs, Eat Pigs, and Wear Cows, in which Melanie Joy introduced the concept of carnism. Since then, Melanie has continued to write books to help deepen and broaden the conversation about creating a better world for all beings, and to support the mission of Beyond Carnism.
