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.

The open source saga has many fascinating chapters. It is partly the story of Linus Torvalds, the master hacker who would become chief architect of the Linux operating system. It is also the story of thousands of devoted programmers around the world who spontaneously worked in tandem to complete the race to shape Linux into the ultimate killer app. Rebel Code traces the remarkable roots of this unplanned revolution. It echoes the twists and turns of Linux's improbable development, as it grew through an almost biological process of accretion and finally took its place at the heart of a jigsaw puzzle that would become the centerpiece of open source. With unprecedented access to the principal players, Moody has written a powerful tale of individual innovation versus big business. Rebel Code provides a from-the-trenches perspective and looks ahead to how open source is challenging long-held conceptions of technology, commerce, and culture.
