Following on from the success of Animal Welfare: A Cool Eye Towards Eden, Professor John Webster has written this sequel. A review of our halting progress towards the unachievable goal where man and animals coexist without suffering. The book contains comment and analysis on virtually all aspects of animal welfare in a pragmatic, highly informed, insightful and entertaining style. The principles of animal welfare are restated followed by consideration of what has been achieved as a result of all the science, all the emotion and all the political pressure that has been brought to bear on animal welfare. New issues such as genetic engineering, biotechnology and new approaches to disease control are included. Most excitingly, for the first time procedures are presented for putting together working protocols for the implementation of animal welfare on farms, in laboratories and in recreation.
