This website is one of our “Book” websites. It was developed by Design Canada and Envoy Media jointly to promote a newly published book by Tony Weis – “The Ecological Hoofprint”, which follows his previous ground-breaking book “The Global Food Economy”. Tony Weis explains clearly why the growth and industrialization of livestock production is a central part of the accelerating biophysical contradictions of industrial capitalist agriculture.
The Ecological Hoofprint provides a rigorous and eye-opening way of understanding what this system means for the health of the planet, how it contributes to worsening human inequality, and how it constitutes a profound but invisible aspect of the violence of everyday life.
The author of the book Tony Weis is an Associate Professor at the University of Western Ontario in London, Ontario.
The website design includes a number of sliders and an interesting video page.
