More books were published with the word 'vegan' in the title in the year 2000 than in the previous 56 years.<br><br>
Combined.<br><br>
By a pretty wide margin - around 200 titles.<br><br>
Wow.<br><br>
Help me wrap my brain around that <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

We aren't making progress. Don't let this fool you.<br><br>
^The above opinion is not mine. It has been expressed to me by another vegan.

I think it has more to do with the cuisine itself than anything else. Something new for foodies to play with. And the word itself losing the stigma formerly attached to it. a fresh crop of cookbook authors in the 2000s updated/improved veganisms image and wrote cookbooks that were more about cooking than philosophy or nutrition. I'd expect more drastic expansion in the early 80s and late 80s if either of those were driving it.<br><br>
Why 2000 itself seems to be a key year I'm not sure. Looking at the titles released in the late 90s and 2000 nothing immediately strikes me as a game changer.<br><br>
In 2009 'vegan' actually shows up more often than 'vegetarian' in titles, but only a third as much as 'vegetarian' in text. Vegan cookbooks were considered a saturated market by publishers though the last few years, so we may see flat growth or even decline in titles published.
