If you have any interest in kashrus, this book provides a fascinating examination of some of the burning issues of the day: the battle over broccoli, the shocking fall of the Postville , Iowa, slaughterhouses, and the stunning rise of glatt kosher standards. The book also discusses the emerging "mash-up" of ethical eating principles, exemplified by Michael Pollan's bestseller Omnivore's Dilemma, and the ethical considerations of kashrus.
