504    Includes bibliographical references (p. 246-263) and 
520    "Vegetarianism has been practiced in the United States 
       since the country's founding, yet the early years of the 
       movement have been woefully misunderstood and 
       understudied. Through the Civil War, the vegetarian 
       movement focused on social and political reform, but by 
       the late nineteenth century, the movement became a path 
       for personal strength and success in a newly 
       individualistic, consumption-driven economy. This 
       development led to greater expansion and acceptance of 
       vegetarianism in mainstream society. So argues Adam D. 
       Shprintzen in his lively history of early American 
       vegetarianism and social reform. From Bible Christians to 
       Grahamites, the American Vegetarian Society to the Battle 
       Creek Sanitarium, Shprintzen explores the diverse 
       proponents of reform-motivated vegetarianism and explains 
       how each of these groups used diet as a response to 
       changing social and political conditions. By examining the
       advocates of vegetarianism, including institutions, 
       organizations, activists, and publications, Shprintzen 
       explores how an idea grew into a nationwide community 
       united not only by diet but also by broader goals of 
       social reform." --Book jacket.
