Come celebrate the release of Total Liberation: The Power and Promise of Animal Rights and the Radical Earth Movement with a book talk and discussion. Copies will be available at Boneshaker and at the event.

About the Book:
Total Liberation elucidates the often tense and violent relationships among humans, ecosystems, and nonhuman animal species, expanding our understanding of inequality and activists’ uncompromising efforts to oppose it. Through activist interviews, fieldwork, and analyses of documents, websites, journals, and zines, David Pellow reveals how radical environmental and animal rights movements challenge inequity through a vision they call “total liberation.” University of Minnesota Press released Total Liberation in September 2014
