Red Meat Republic

''Red Meat Republic: A Hoof-to-Table History of How Beef Changed America'' is a 2019 nonfiction agricultural history book written by Joshua Specht and published by Princeton University Press. It covers the history of beef production in the United States, along with cattle ranching, and how the increase and expansion of beef products have been entwined with the rise of American commercial power. The book started as an extension of Specht's doctoral dissertation that he defended in 2014 and his desire to publish an actual historical form of food writing, unlike other books he admired such as ''The Omnivore's Dilemma''. The exterior of the hardcover uses a plain brown wrapping that was applauded by Andrew R. Graybill in his ''Reviews in American History'' analysis thanks to it directly "evoking the look and even the feel of the butcher paper used to package a slab of store-bought beef".
