It is against this backdrop that we object to the recent Sportsbet parody of 50 Shades of Grey hound. We might have been able to see the ridiculousness of a greyhound dressed so and laugh it off.

Starting from this scepticism regarding animal liberation, Bob Torres draws broadly upon left theory to show how human oppression and animal oppression are intertwined through the exploitative dynamics of capitalism. With a focus on labour, property, and the life of commodities, Making a Killing contains key insights on the nature of domination, power, and hierarchy, and argues for a critical social theory that understands the human domination of nature in terms of the domination of human by human.

An eye-opener for readers concerned with progressive politics, animal welfare or both. Concluding with an analysis of the political praxis of veganism, the book puts forth an abolitionist theory of animal rights that challenges thinking both within the broader left and the animal rights movement. Making a Killing is a rare and powerful example of first-rate scholarship, a searing critique, and lively declaration of the rights of animals and humans.

Drawing from social anarchist theory, Torres provides a convincing argument that in order to fight animal exploitation, we must also fight capitalism and, in doing so, animal rights activists will need to reconsider their methods and redirect their focus Making a Killing is an important work from a new voice in animal advocacy that will surely spark heated discussions amongst activists from all corners of the movement.
