This book offers a scholarly history of the evolution of animal welfare public policy, and brings a novel, sociological perspective to an area of understanding and values that has been addressed in the past mostly from a philosophical perspective, or from the entrenched positions of highly commited advocates of a particular position in the debate about animal rights.
Ultimately, the book is a great read for anyone interested in animal ethics. It provides an important history of how actual decisions in the real world that affect animals were made, and how such decisions are tied to the ethical theories of philosophers, the demands of animal protectionists, and the assumptions of research scientists. Anthrozoos, 2006
