Inhaltsangabe: As agriculture employs advanced technology, the new industrialization that evolves leaves behind unresolved problems including those of human nutrition and hunger. Concerns for health, global warming, and food safety have become top priority for environmentalists and other advocates, but it is for those without a voice that Human Issues in Animal Agriculture speaks.

H. O. Kunkel explores the evolutionary topics of the ethics involved in animal treatment, legal and political influences on regulations, and land use. The risks that technology and policy impose on animal agriculture and the public?s perception of these issues are also included to further separate this book from others in its field.

Kunkel does not dwell on issues of labor, occupational safety, water rights, and other general market problems. Rather, he focuses his efforts on the concepts of human-animal interdependence and components of human ecology. He also explores both the societal and biophysical factors that affect animal sciences in developed and developing countries.

Kunkel?s premise is that science, including the social sciences, must be combined with ethical inquiry and education to gain the eventual capacity to sort out myth and reality in animal agriculture. Human Issues in Animal Agriculture gives much-needed information to those involved in natural sciences, political sciences, animal sciences, food sciences, and philosophy. This Number Two : Texas A&M University Agriculture Series revolutionary analysis provides students and scholars with information that will assist in understanding the present in order to mold the future of animal sciences.

Über den Autor: H. O. Kunkel is dean emeritus of the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences and professor emeritus of Animal Science at Texas A&M University.
