"This book will serve as a valuable trail guide to those interested in the rough and varied terrain of this large, important subject. Each chapter provides an introduction to its topic and a short but focused literature review. Containing chapters from a number of disciplinary perspectives, the book is comprised of an introductory philosophical discussion of the concept of animal welfare and its moral significance, a compendium of problems posed to animal welfare by current agricultural and scientific practices, discussion of the scientific assessment and measurement of animal welfare, and examination of some possible ways of improving animal welfare (particularly in agriculture), and finally, and perhaps most importantly, two chapters that address the question of how such possibilities might be realized."--The Quarterly Review of Biology "An introduction to the concepts and literature of the field, weighted toward farm animals, but also encompassing issues germane to students, researchers, and practitioners in animal science, veterinary medicine, and applied zoology and psychology. The selected readings and critical commentary offer a variety of perspectives on the philosophy, measurement, and solving practical problems."--Reference & Research Book NewsFrom the Publisher:
Concern for animal welfare has recently increased and continues to increase in many countries. The topic is now an established part of the curriculum for students of agriculture and veterinary medicine. This book is a response to this growing interest. It brings together diverse approaches to the subject, from philosophy through scientific study and measurement, to the implementation of practical solutions to real problems. The contents combine selected readings with commentaries from experts in different fields. Thus most chapters are reviews built around key sources, rather than articles with references in support. While more information is available on farm animals than on other groups, the principles are equally applicable to all animals. Written by leading authors from Europe, North America, Australia and New Zealand, the book is aimed at a wide readership, including students, research workers and interested professional and lay people in animal science, veterinary medicine and applied zoology and psychology.
