In this extension of his Animal Welfare and Meat Science (1998), Gregory (Royal Veterinary College, UK) takes into account moral concerns about meat production--without taking a stand on the practices he describes. He presents statistics and debates over evolving livestock and meat production practices globally, food safety, and "green movement" concerns over animal rights and genetically modified organisms. A chapter addresses animal welfare issues particular to developing countries, and a U.S. scientist offers guidelines for animal welfare audit programs. The author does not discuss kosher standards of humane slaughter. This edition has beefed up references and includes student assignments. Distributed by Oxford U. Press.
