It provides a fascinating insight into the system we continue to live with as the global population increases. It includes new chapters by international experts in animal welfare including Marion Stamp Dawkins, discussing Animal Machines's significant legacy and impact today. It is suitable for animal welfare researchers, academics and students, welfare associations and charities, veterinary schools, agricultural colleges, agriculturalists, farmers, food quality professionals, farm inspection professionals and the general public.
