For the Birds: From Exploitation to Liberation showcases Karen Davis’s three decades of popular and academic work. As the founder and director of United Poultry Concerns, she has done more than perhaps anyone to reveal the complex and socially rich lives of birds. Her writing – intellectually rigorous, passionate, erudite, and witty – brings fully to the fore the great injustices we have perpetrated on these intelligent and loving creatures.”

“To understand the context of Karen’s thinking and writing, you must understand that chickens have been at the very heart of her professional and personal life all these years.”

For the Birds substantiates the enduring value of Karen Davis’s work as an author, an activist, and a rescuer. I am confident that Karen’s readers will be greatly rewarded, and that the birds and all animals will benefit, as they already do, from the abiding passion and influence of her advocacy for them.”
Robert Grillo, Foreword


“I wasn't keen on immersing myself in another book on animal cruelty. But a few days into working on this one, I just couldn't continue being a meat eater. Karen's arguments and descriptions piled on top of so many things I already knew but had managed to sidestep. So, there's one less meat eater out there now. Thanks for the kick in the pants.”
Rachel Nishan, Twin Oaks Indexing


“I’m reading your new book now. It’s terrific!”
