`much needed and long-awaited erudite publication. ... a brilliant exposition of the complicated legal status of animals.' The Institute of Animal Technology Bulletin Vol 38, No. 3, March 2002 `Given the dramatic changes in knowledge of, and attitudes towards, animals in recent years, rapid legal developments were inevitable. The subject of animals in law is presented as an exciting and dynamically developing subject by Mike Radford. Many people will want to know what is happening and how it has come about. The structures of law are not easy to comprehend but Mike Radford is masterful in presenting a story which is dramatic and interesting, whilst informing in an expert and comprehensively reliable way. People from many backgrounds, and indeed many countries, will enjoy this book and find it very useful.' Donald Broom (quote from the Foreward)
