"Charles Patterson's Eternal Treblinka is a wonderful book about terrible subjects, a work that resonates and extends the best of liberal humanism and broad left activism to the exploitation, oppression and extermination of non-human species. While the work is not directly Marxist, it is one that Marx would have appreciated and one from which Marxists can learn much – a work with tremendous use value. "
