'Colin Spedding's timely book ... succeeds by addressing every issue confronting animal welfarists objectively, scientifically and above all compassionately. This book will be a major contributor to the present and future work of all those committed to improving the welfare of every individual animal' Peter Davies, Director General, Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals 'In a field where argument is often typified more by emotion than hard facts, this logical analysis provides a superb structure for reaching sound and reliable conclusions. Furthermore, Sir Colin has looked into the future and gives us all an insight into the sorts of welfare issues that we may well be confronting in years to come' Judy MacArthur Clark, Chairman, Farm Animal Welfare Council 'I think it is brilliant, and had I Colin Spedding's experience and encyclopedic knowledge, I would have been proud to be the author.
