'... a thoughtful consideration of both the pros and cons of animal research ... an excellent guide to the issues that current teachers of biology and biomedical science ... Monamy's engaging and direct fashion will appeal to even the most impatient of undergraduates, and this slim book could easily be read and discussed during the first week of a basic biology class. I expect that those unfamiliar with the animal welfare debate, both inside and outside the classroom, will benefit enormously from reading Animal Experimentation.' Asif A. Ghazanfar, Animal Behaviour
'... an uncomplicated introduction to an undoubtedly complicated debate. The book should appeal to anyone interested in animal welfare at whatever level not just those scientists who are directly involved in animal experiments. In addition it should be useful in helping students and researchers to formulate coherent arguments to justify what they are or are not prepared to do in their work. Another bonus is that the book is both easy to read and relatively concise whilst still managing to cover the major issues regarding animal experimentation.' Primate Eye
'... a clear, concise introduction to the major elements of the debate surrounding animal experimentation ... Monany's comprehensible text will appeal to the lay person, student and scientist alike.' Tessa Smith, Biologist
'... balanced, clearly expressed and well argued ...'. The Australian
'... a comprehensive overview of the history of animal experimentation and the methods being developed to provide alternatives or at least minimise the impact on research animals and the numbers used.' Canberra Times
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.
