In the Introduction to this 1980 book (revised in 1990), Jim Mason wrote, "this book is not intended to be an attack on farmers and the people who run factory farms. I am familiar with farm people and the feelings they have about making a living from their land. They are buffeted by economic developments that force them to try to push their animals to greater and greater productivity.

Jim Mason and Peter Singer are two of the best sources for books on animal rights. It was appalling to read what happens to animals that are being raised for slaughter. Some of this book is difficult to stomach. Factually, not hysterically, Animal Factories leads us through cruel factory farms where mother sows are so confined they can’t walk or turn around and where ‘veal’ calves exist in darkness and turn ‘tender’ on an iron-deficient diet.

Jim Mason is an author and attorney who focuses on human/animal concerns. Jim Mason's writings have appeared in a wide variety of publications. His latest book, co-authored with ethicist Peter Singer, is The Ethics of What We Eat: Why Our Food Choices Matter (Rodale Press, 2006).

Strong feelings for animals have driven the course of my life. From the age of 5, when I rescued baby mice from the barn and kept them warm in a shoe box behind the kitchen stove, to today’s work of getting funding to grassroots groups working for animals in rural areas, helping animals has been my joy and my passion. It all began as a child on a Missouri farm and it feeds me today as a writer and attorney in big cities back East.
