"In recent years, animal law has been a growing field of interest and debate among both legal practitioners and students. Animal Law in Australia: An Integrated Approach is the first text that offers truly integrated and comprehensive coverage of animal law issues, making it suitable as a teaching text, and for the wider legal community and general reader. By combining the philosophical and ethical dimensions of animal law with the practical, legal and regulatory frameworks governing animals in Australia, this book demonstrates that the treatment of animals under different regulatory regimes is a result of how regulators, and society more broadly, think about and value animals. Written in a clear and accessible style, the text introduces key concepts in each chapter then presents each issue in a systematic and integrated way. Each chapter contains helpful summaries to assist with the understanding of complex material, and many useful tables are included for comparative purposes. Suggestions for further reading and research are also provided for each topic"--Provided by publisher.
