Big Ag Forces University To Stop Distributing Book To Students

It seems that books criticizing the actions of big corporations are too “controversial” for some universities. Washington State University dropped the book “Omnivore‚Äôs Dilemma: A Natural History of Four Meals” from their “common reading” program — in fact dropped the whole program — after a complaint from an agri-business-associated member of the board of regents of the University. Even though the university had already purchased 4,000 copies.
Big money makes the decisions these days. Apparently even about which books can be distributed at universities.
