Scholarly and personal essays on the intersections of the prison-industrial complex, industrial animal agriculture, and capitalism.

Vegan Entanglements: Dismantling Racial and Carceral Capitalism invites over 15 activists, scholars, and journalists to grapple with some of the most topical issues facing the animal protection movement, specifically its historical dependence on the prison - and immigration - industrial complexes and the carceral logics that inform and normalize the violence of incarceration and deportation. The contributors to this collection not only dissect and interrogate this relationship between the animal welfare movement and carcerality, surveillance, white supremacy, and capitalism, but offer concrete tactics for activists, non-profits, and other stakeholders to create a more equitable animal welfare movement based upon abolition and collective liberation.


“A powerful, intersectional, radical text that moves social justice, critical animal studies, inclusion, and total liberation forward.” — Anthony J. Nocella II, co-editor, Terrorists or Freedom Fighters?

“For those seeking an end to the interlocking systems of oppression, the anti-carceral perspectives in this collection offer insights into emptying all cages and keeping them empty for generations to come.” — Amber E. George, Editor, Journal for Critical Animal Studies
