Animals, welfare and the law (Book)

Animals, Welfare and the Law reveals how the fundamental principles of the human-animal relationship drive the past, present and the likely future development of animal welfare law. The book explains the criteria by which the lawful use of animals is currently determined, and identifies 29 key principles which constitute core knowledge necessary for people involved in debating, critically assessing and guiding the evolution of animal welfare law.  

Animals, Welfare and the Law is an essential introductory text for anyone with personal or professional interests which involve animals because it enables understanding of what drives the development of society's national and international legal rulebook which, in turn, governs people's responsibilities regarding the lawful treatment, protection and uses of animals.
