Australia’s conflict of values over live exports
By Dr Bidda Jones and Julian Davies
In 2011 footage of the inhumane slaughter of cattle in Indonesia caused the greatest outpouring of public protest in over thirty years. This book brings to life these extraordinary events including the backlash against the campaign to end the trade, a reaction which continues to characterise cattle producers as the victims of the crisis rather than the animals themselves.
A compelling, insightful analysis of an issue that is a litmus test for who we are as a people. Andrew Wilkie MP
A terrific read... A gripping and at times disturbing tale from inside one of the most explosive political stories of recent times. Michael Brissenden
I was appalled with the 2011 events involving live exports, and cannot wait to read more about what actually happened. Exporting live animals is cruel and pointless in today's world.
