Environmental Enrichment for Captive Animals by Robert J. Young
Book DescriptionEnvironmental enrichment is a simple and effective means of improving animal welfare in any species - companion, farm, laboratory and zoo. For many years, it has been a popular area of research, and has attracted the attention and concerns of animal keepers and carers, animal industry professionals, academics, students and pet owners all over the world. This book is the first to integrate scientific knowledge and principles to show how environmental enrichment can be used on different types of animal. Filling a major gap, it considers the history of animal keeping, legal issues and ethics, right through to a detailed exploration of whether environmental enrichment actually works, the methods involved, and how to design and manage programmes. The first book in a major new animal welfare series, it draws together a large amount of research on different animals. It provides detailed examples and case studies and is an invaluable reference tool for all those who work with or study animals in captivity.

France and the Origins of the Second World War, Paperback (September 1996)» View all books by Robert J. Young
France's drift into war and subsequent collapse have often been attributed to her level of confidence. Either she had too much, or too little. This work contends that these two moods were not mutually exclusive, that they co-existed throughout the interwar years.
