Jeremy Rifkin's book Beyond Beef, confronted the cattle industry with the plight of cattle.  Prisoned Chickens, Poisoned Eggs ignites a new understanding of poultry industry abuses.  Citing research from poultry industry publications and studies, Davis builds a chilling account of a morally handicapped industry driven over the edge.   The techniques and attitudes that produce suffering in chickens and disease in humans are carefully examined.  Intimate, first hand accounts provided by Davis and others reveal the complex emotional lives of chickens.  Quotes from poultry workers and executives lay bare a world of pain and deception where compassion is punished and greed exalted.  A shocking expose of the poultry and egg industry from animal rights activist Karen Davis.
