"This book is succinct and an easy read, providing clear discussions of ethical philosophy without moralizing and emphasizing any particular viewpoint... The book is highly recommended." ( Journal of the American Association for Laboratory Animal Science , September 2009) "This short book is a useful introduction to the issues regarding animal use and to the concepts and theories used in informed discussions about ethically appropriate uses. The authors adopt a 'pluralist approach,' to present 'the arguments dispassionately, and in a fair and balanced way' ... .Well researched and presents a wealth of Information." ( Agriculture and Human Values , January 2009)
