The Animal Experimentation Debate: A Reference Handbook (Contemporary World Issues) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The debate over the use of nonhuman animals in experimental research has gone on for centuries, and it continues as vigorously today as it ever has. In fact, in the last decade, the controversy has intensified, making animal testing a topic at the highest level of debate of any socioscientific issue in the United States. This book presents all sides of the issue so that readers can come to their own conclusions as to the morality and validity of animal experimentation, and provides biographies of individuals and descriptions of organizations that have been involved in the debate over the centuries. Additionally, it documents the historical shift in thinking that made animal experimentation commonplace between the time of the ancient Greeks and the 19th century, to the mindset of some who argue for an end to the practice and alternative ways of conducting medical experimentation to benefit human health.

Synopsis:

Reviewing the topic from antiquity to the present day, this book examines the debate over the use of animals in research in a fair and balanced way.

Synopsis:

• Presents an introduction to the history of scientific research utilizing animals and a thorough review of current issues relating to animal experimentation

• Provides perspectives in which stakeholders in the field outline and explain their personal views on animal testing

• Supplies an extensive annotated bibliography of books, articles, reports, and online resources

• Includes profiles of important individuals and organizations

• Provides an outstanding resource for secondary school students, undergraduates, or general readers with an interest in medical and biological research or animal welfare
