Robert "Bob" Torres was an assistant professor of sociology at St. Lawrence University in Canton, New York. He is the co-author, with his wife Jenna Torres, of Vegan Freak: Being Vegan in a Non-Vegan World (2005), and Making A Killing: The Political Economy of Animal Rights (2007).
Making a Killing examines animal rights from a social anarchist position. Torres argues that changing our attitudes toward animals is essential to changing other relationships of dominance that characterize most societies.
Torres and his wife briefly produced a podcast about animal rights and veganism, featuring the Torres' commentary, along with the occasional guest, and Torres was a partner at the now defunct Tofu Hound Press, which was a small publishing company that released a few books on the same subject. The podcast suddenly ceased in 2009 and websites related to it were taken down shortly thereafter without notice.
