Food writer Colin Spencer discusses those who came to vegetarianism by choice, not necessity, from the religions that preach it such as Hinduism and Seventh Day Adventism to the notable individuals who have practiced it, including Leonardo da Vinci and Gandhi. In this accessible history of vegetarianism, Spencer also explores the psychology of abstention and the ideas that have informed a meat-free diet throughout the ages.
