  1. An anthropology of the future. 

Scientists and futurists predict that consuming meat and dairy will be banned or taboo in the near future.  Veganism is one of the last options we have to help humanity prevent climate change; it is also one of the fastest-growing social movements of the 21st century. Veganism is booming. But what will we eat, instead? What will we wear, do for a living, and how will we look back on our carnivorous history? Based on scientific research and dozens of interviews with futurists, trend watchers, lawyers, lobbyists, sociologists, historians, food experts, psychologists, inventors, vegan bodybuilders, influencers and farmers, Roanne outlines an anthropology of the future. She shows how norms, trends, and cultures in societies will rapidly change and introduces you to a post-cruelty future.
