Fatal Harvest: The Tragedy of Industrial Agriculture
January 6, 2005
"We ... find ourselves in the midst of a historic battle over two very different visions of the future of food in the 21st century. A grassroots public movement for organic, ecological, and humane food is now challenging the decades-long hegemony of the corporate, industrial model." With 58 essays and more than 250 photographs, Kimbrell, director of the Center for Food Safety, aims to provide "a timely treasure trove of ammunition" for that movement. The ammunition includes a litany of environmental harms caused by industrial agriculture and a strategy for bringing about "the end of agribusiness." -Scientific American

The Human Body Shop: The Engineering and Marketing of Life
"The Human Body Shop Looks at the actual and potential hazards of genetic engineering and bio-technology... Kimbrell has the confident tone of those who know danger when they see it... Its rich array of citations and examples show how the marriage of science and business, the mechanistic view of the body and the profit motive, have created commerce masquerading as liberation... The book cuts through the jumble of commercial hype and scientific utopianism. Kimbrell tells his story effectively and fully" -The New York Times
The Masculine Mystique: The Politics of Masculinity
"Unlike most books on the 'crisis of masculinity,' this call to action by lawyer and environmentalist Kimbrell is neither an attack on nor a reaction to feminism. Rather, it advances the proposition that men, no less than women, have been victims of social change since the advent of the industrial revolution... Kimbrell asserts that the resultant misandry has damaged men in their relations with women, their children and other men. After exploring precisely how men suffer from this stereotype, he issues "a manifesto for men" with recommendations to remedy the situation, none of them antifeminist and all of them achievable. An important analysis that recalls The Feminine Mystique (1963) of Betty Friedan." -Publisher's Weekly
