David A. Nibert, "Animal Oppression and Human Violence: Domesecration, Capitalism, and Global Conflict"
2013 | pages: 352 | ISBN: 0231151896 | EPUB | 16,7 mb

Jared Diamond and other leading scholars have argued that the domestication of animals for food, labor, and tools of war has advanced the development of human society. But by comparing practices of animal exploitation for food and resources in different societies over time, David A. Nibert reaches a strikingly different conclusion. He finds in the domestication of animals, which he renames "domesecration," a perversion of human ethics, the development of large-scale acts of violence, disastrous patterns of destruction, and growth-curbing epidemics of infectious disease.
