Essays Connecting Issues of Justice

Edited by Will Tuttle, Ph.D.

“Compassion is the path to transformation of consciousness and purification of the human spirit. This important book is an exciting collection of deep reflections about compassion and its celebration of all living creatures who abide equally within the shimmering web of life.” – Elizabeth & Dennis Kucinich

What are the linkages among compassion for animals, social justice, and harmony in our human world?

Circles of Compassion (Vegan Publishers, 320 pages; $22); edited by Dr. Tuttle, consists of a series of essays by internationally recognized authors and activists. These insightful and inspiring essays focus on how the seemingly disparate issues of human, animal, and environmental rights are indeed connected.

Illuminating the connections between injustice to animals and the various forms of social and ecological injustice, these 28 authors provide essential keys to effectively addressing the hidden roots of our dilemmas.

The essays also provide practical guidance about how to make the individual, systems, and social changes necessary to effectively create a peaceful and just world for all. This landmark book provides a crucial impetus for us to break through our confining delusions, build bridges of understanding, and awaken from the cultural trance of indifference and inequity.

Our physical, psychological, social, and spiritual health are all intimately connected, and they can flourish when we understand and live the impassioned insights living in Circles of Compassion.

Circles of Compassion is available through bookstores, online retailers such as Amazon, and signed copies are available from this site. It’s available on Kindle also.

“There are a thousand hacking at the branches of evil to one who is striking at the root.” – Henry David Thoreau

“Our food choices are a surprising and overlooked key to understanding our culture and ourselves, and to transforming our world toward harmony and freedom. Speciesism, racism, sexism, ableism, ageism, heterosexism, and classism all spring from reducing certain beings to mere objects who are seen as fundamentally separate from us, and either threats to be managed, or instruments to be used.” – Will Tuttle

“The twin motivations underlying veganism are compassion and justice. As we awaken to the power of understanding this and begin to live it, we directly reduce animal cruelty and suffering. We dramatically reduce our abuse of the Earth, other humans, other species, our loved ones and ourselves, and become a force for positive social transformation.” – Will Tuttle
