Description: As agricultural endeavors increasingly turn to advanced technology, the resulting industrialization inadvertently causes unresolved problems, including malnutrition and famine. Concerns about health, global warming, and food safety have become top priorities for environmental activists, who raise their concerns publicly. But it is for those without a voice that Human Issues in Animal Agriculture speaks.

H. O. Kunkel explores the ethics involved in animal treatment, legal and political influences on regulations, and land use. He also discusses the risks that chemical and biological treatment impose on animal agriculture and the public's perception of these issues, which previous works have largely ignored.

Kunkel does not dwell merely 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 ethical, societal, and biophysical factors that affect animal sciences in developed and developing countries.

Kunkel asserts that scientists must combine ethical inquiry and education to sort out myth and reality in animal agriculture. Human Issues in Animal Agriculture gives much-needed information to those involved in the natural sciences, political science, animal sciences, food sciences, and philosophy and will help students and scholars understand the present in order to mold the future of animal science.
