Sammarco, Andrea L. (2016) Is humanitarianism recent?. Animal Sentience. 5(10)
Although there is the need for textbooks in this field, the literary style of Broom’s Sentience and Animal Welfare detracts from the readability of the book. The author attempts with mixed success to define the field and differing opinions regarding the definitions of “sentience” and “animal welfare,” but makes a number of questionable assumptions concerning the history of the subject area.
