How It All Vegan:

The Inside Story of Icons, Informers, and Innovators

Who Changed Food Forever

How It All Vegan opens a new chapter in the conversation about how we eat. It is the culmination of five years in the field and over a hundred and fifty interviews around the globe with the leaders of the latest vegan wave. As a Harvard-trained sociologist, you can think of me as a food writer backed by the best social science. I will show—using data and theory—how this movement is changing food and culture. Rightly or wrongly, the herbivore’s solution is the one we’re headed toward, so it’s worth knowing who is behind it and why. The rise of veganism is not a natural evolution, but a carefully orchestrated coup to transform humanity’s relationship to animals, to the planet, and to our deepest cravings. Whether or not you entertain veganism with any enthusiasm, this book will change your perspective on plant-based fare and meat alike—leaving you with no doubt that vegans are transforming the future of food.

Habits of Inequality (Oxford University Press, 2013)

Co-Authored with Lorne Tepperman, University of Toronto

Societies show a cultural predisposition (or "habit") toward more or less inequality. These social inequalities have a number of hidden costs, ranging from unnecessarily high rates of physical and mental illness, addiction, violence, and crime. In order to address these major inequalities—and to resolve their associated social problems—we must first overcome the underlying habit that connects them all.
