Through a multidisciplinary approach, this book takes the reader on a journey through the complex maze of issues that surround animal welfare today.

International contributors present their views on what constitutes genuine animal welfare and how it is attained. They discuss such topics as the environmental issues involved in industrial animal agriculture as well as the multiple uses of animals in developing and developed nations.
