This book examines past, present and future practices and thinking, including the wide-ranging interests within society that influence attitudes towards animals and conversely how animal welfare scientists may influence those attitudes. Key themes of the book include: - Multi-disciplinary working and its benefits: how we can obtain fresh insights, enliven our thinking and improve animal welfare by operating widely within diverse disciplines - Questioning the fundamental assumptions we each make about animals and their functional capabilities. The authors acknowledge the field's debt to past successes in animal-based science disciplines, successes that markedly improved animal welfare long before the concept of animal welfare entered common parlance. They also recognise the problems which unexpectedly arose, and anticipate future successes. Suggesting innovative approaches to Animal Welfare Science, and written by world renowned experts, The Sciences of Animal Welfare is essential reading for anyone interested, studying or currently working in Animal Welfare Science. This book is part of the UFAW/Wiley-Blackwell Animal Welfare Book Series. This major series of books produced in collaboration between UFAW (The Universities Federation for Animal Welfare), and Wiley-Blackwell provides an authoritative source of information on worldwide developments, current thinking and best practice in the field of animal welfare science and technology.

  1. 4 out of 5

    Kramer Thompson

    This book was very clear and well written. I think that it would be extremely useful for anyone entering agricultural or animal welfare sciences. However, that is not me, and I only got use from the latter half of the book. That said, what was in the latter half was quite interesting and useful, and could certainly come in handy in the future.

    My review may be biased based on the subject matter but the book was more of what I already knew. A good read but like it advertises its a large literature review on different aspects of what we understand as Animal Welfare today and common controversies that extend from this.
