The complexities of animal behaviour revealed in the last few decades are astonishing, but what are the implications? In this book, internationally respected contributors are brought together for the first time, to debate and attempt to answer these questions. The first sections discuss scientific and ethical perspectives on the consciousness, emotions and mental abilities of animals. Later sections address how human activities, such as science, law, farming, food production, trade, development and education respect or ignore animals' sentience and welfare, and review the options for changes in our policies, our practices and our thinking.
'This book should be recommended to all those that either have an interest in or, perhaps more importantly, an influence on animal welfare standards.' Animal Welfare, Feb. 2007, Vol. 16, Issue 1
