            The animal agriculture industry, like other profit-driven industries, aggressively seeks to shield itself from external threats. To this end, it employs a distinct set of rhetorical strategies to avoid public scrutiny. These tactics are an integral part of modern animal agricultu...re but have long evaded critical analysis. In Meatsplaining, contributors from a range of academic and activist perspectives examine the many forms of denialism perpetuated by the animal agriculture industry. What strategies of persuasion does the industry use to deflect questions about animal welfare, the environment, and public health, and what narratives, myths, and fantasies does it promote to sustain its image in the public imagination?
