Summary
"The Sciences of Animal Welfare analyses the diverse, interconnecting subjects which constitute this multi-disciplinary field, whilst also considering the limitations and benefits of those subjects to the development and future of Animal Welfare Science. This book examines past, present and future practices and thinking, including the wide-ranging interests within society that influence attitudes towards animals and conversely how animal welfare scientists may influence those attitudes."--BOOK JACKET
