Adventures of a Farm Animal Protection Lawyer
Peter Brandt

Peter Brandt, a lawyer for the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS), has been at the forefront of some of the toughest cases of animal abuse in the last ten years - including
supervising a team of lawyers working to protect the interests of farm animals. In this revelatory and often surprisingly funny memoir-cum-manifesto, Brandt describes his growing awareness of the extent of the cruelty of animals in Concentrated Animal Feeding Operations (a.k.a. factory farms) and the many dangers for human health, local communities and the environment for those who live near them. He shows how it's a world of enormous suffering, sustained by deliberate secrecy and misinformation and reeking of corruption and lagoons full of ordure.

Brandt details his realisation of intensive animal farming's further costs to wild creatures and their habitats, as well as clean water and clean air and demonstrates how curbing animal agriculture is one of the few ways to make an immediate positive difference to climate change.
