President of the Center for the Expansion of Fundamental Rights, Wise has taught law at several US colleges, has written several books, and has practiced animal rights law since 1982. Here he delves into the history of a particular piece of land in Bladen County, North Carolina. He went to investigate reports of cruelty to pigs at a slaughterhouse and related factory hog farms, and discovered that they were located on what had been the fields of a plantation worked by black slaves. Before that, he found, Natives Americans lived there, admiring and respecting animals for centuries. He looks at how the genocide and the slavery were eventually stopped by religious activists, and discusses how the same religious values are working to stop the torture and slaughter today.

This book integrates time-honored approaches to empowerment practice with today's more modest goals, mindful of what empowerment can and cannot do. Synthesizing several theoretical supports--the strengths perspective, system theory, theories of family well-being, and theories of coping--the author responds to the question "What works?" with today's families in need. Practice illustrations are provided throughout.
