"In this book, Lennart Nordenfelt makes a careful and thoughtful analysis of these concepts, based on a thorough reading of the veterinary and animal science literature combined with his own deep understanding of the parallel debates in the human health field. His analysis moves a cluttered and conflicted topic onto a higher plane." David Fraser, University of British Columbia, Canada"
