Media reviews

John Webster has written an even-handed but hard-hitting critique of modern livestock farming 1995 New Scientist "This is a thought provoking and sensible book which can be highly recommended to all those interested in animal welfare" PH Holmes, Jan 1996 Veterinary Record. "I expect to be reading this book many times over the next 20 years. It will, in my opinion, become a central guidepost in the emerging discipline of animal welfare. John Webster's contribution is formidable and he unquestionably achieves his stated goal." Ken Johnson, Dec 1995 ANZCCART News (Australian laboratory animal society newsletter)
