I haven't read too many books on veganism or animal rights, I'm sorry to say. But these are the ones I have read.
1. Diet for a New America
by John Robbins, which helped me finalize the decision to go vegan.
2. Mad Cowboy: Plain Truth from the Cattle Rancher Who Won't Eat Meat
by Howard F. Lyman, which kept me vegan.
3. Skinny Bitch
by Rory Freedman and Kim Barnouin, which showed me that you can be vegan and fall prey to unhealthy eating habits. (I wrote my review of it in my veg blog: http://vegan-noise.blogspot.com/2006/04 ... bitch.html
I'm currently reading When I Was Puerto Rican
by Esmeralda Santiago, but that has nothing to do with veganism. However, I do
have a whole list of books to tackle addressing the issues of diet, health, veganism, and animal rights. These are just some of the ones waiting, on my book shelves, to be read:
by Peter Singer, which I began but couldn't go through with reading.
by Matthew Skully
*Peace to All Beings -- Veggie Soup for the Chicken's Soul
by Judy Carman
*Fast Food Nation
by Eric Schlosser
*Making Kind Choices
by Ingrid Newkirk, which I've only flipped through as a guide.
*Breaking the Food Seduction
by Neal Barnard, M.D.
