A Guide to the IssuesBook - 2000
An important new book for all those involved in the conduct, teaching, learning, regulation, support or critique of animal-based research. For perhaps the first time, all the major issues in the animal experimentation debate are introduced in the same volume. This book covers the history and ethics of experimentation, discusses the moral status of animals and the obligations of researchers and introduces alternatives to animal research. Although aimed at life-science students, its clarity of style will reach lay people and experts with equal ease. Its balance does justice to both the arguments that support and oppose animal experimentation. Here, students and researchers will find a non-intimidating, readily understood introduction to the principal ethical arguments in the animal experimentation debate.
