SALE - The Costs and Benefits of Animal Experiments
Bioethicist and veterinarian Andrew Knight asks if animal experimentation is ethically justifiable. He investigates how useful animal research has been in advancing human healthcare and reveals how much animals have suffered as a result.
Well-referenced and full of useful information, this book is highly readable. Knight presents a balanced view and makes a strong argument, based on sound scientific evidence, for ending animal experiments in both clinical research and education.
his book challenges the outdated view that the overall good outweighs the overall evil. It includes a chapter on non-animal research and testing methodologies. Essential reading for anyone interested in the ethical issues raised by animal experimentation, including scientists, pharmaceutical and cosmetic manufacturers, philosophers, policy-makers, students and educators.
