Chickens' Lib

£7.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

In the late 1960s and 1970s, Clare Druce, together with her mother Violet Spalding, set about getting public support for their campaign against battery hen rearing. The name of the pressure group, by 1980, came to be Chickens' Lib. This book is amusing, poignant, disturbing and, as a social history, essential to the understanding of the animal rights movement and food security. As such it is a pointer to what is happening in the food industry today and recent scandals make Chickens' Lib an essential read.

Book in very good condition.
