This book is written for researchers, students and professionals in areas including animal welfare ethics, animal behaviourists, veterinarians, veterinary nurses, animal welfare counsellors, animal trainers, and professionals and volunteers with an interest in animal welfare ethics.
Several of the main areas of ethical inquiry concerning animals are introduced, explained and analysed. Inquiries also cover cultural traditions affecting the well being of animals, and discussions concerning the role of aesthetics in practices relevant to the welfare of animals.
Unlike many books which feature arguments about ethical theories this book includes elements of personal experience with animals. Although the author is an academic teaching within a university structure, he is also a professional animal trainer.
Author: David Lamb is Honorary Reader in Bioethics, University of Birmingham, UK, and former Head of the Philosophy Department, University of Manchester. He is a Visiting Lecturer in Animal Welfare Ethics in the University of Southampton, and a Member of the Ethics Committee at Marwell Zoo, Winchester, UK
