Abstract

As part of Routledge’s ‘Studies in Food, Society, and the Environment’ series, Kenavy’s recent edited volume provides a timely look at plant-based eating, in both research and practice. Plant-Based Diets for Succulence and Sustainability (2020) includes fourteen chapters divided into four thematic sections (environmental sustainability, human health, animal rights and welfare, and political economy), and is delivered in an engaging yet accessible way appropriate for academic and general audiences. Plant-Based Diets is particularly interesting given its focus on Canadian case studies and persistent social issues, with a noticeable number of cases focusing on Canada’s East coast.
