In a world where most hunger is alleviated with an occasional handful of grain, red meats daily appearance on most American tables is a vivid symbol of national prosperity.

With the extensive bibliography accompanying this work, the only modern comprehensive study of American livestock raising and meatpacking, readers will have access to countless details of the meat industry.
