(Format : pdf , Language : English)

From Publishers Weekly
Scientists who use monkeys and other animals in biomedical research face mounting opposition from animal-rights advocates. Basing this detailed report largely on interviews, Blum, a journalist at the Sacramento Bee in California who won a 1992 Pulitzer Prize for a series of articles that inspired this middle-of-the-road book, accuses both sides of caricaturing their opponents as fanatics. Striving for evenhandedness, she seeks compromise and negotiation, perhaps best exemplified by Jan Moor-Jankowski. Director of the Laboratory for Experimental Medicine and Surgery in Sterling Forest, N.Y., Moor-Jankowski listens to animal-rights activists and incorporates some of their criticisms into his methodology. We also meet Christine Stevens of the Washington, D.C.-based Animal Welfare Institute; outspoken Alex Pacheco of People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals; and Peter Gerone, crusader for animal research and director of Tulane's Primate Research Center. Blum credits the animal-rights movement with holding researchers to a standard of compassion and changing the way scientists think about the use of animals.

From Library Journal
The use of animals in biomedical research has long been controversial. We want to reap the benefits of medical knowledge that can only be gained through research, but we don't like to think of animals being made to suffer. Blum, a California journalist who won a 1992 Pulitzer Prize for the series of articles that inspired this book, does a good job of presenting both sides of the issue in this discussion of primate research. She respects the value of scientific research while sympathizing with those concerned with the welfare of the animals. Traveling to primate research facilities across the country, Blum introduces us to the best-known primate researchers and their projects. She shows that primates are amazingly similar to humans in their capacity to learn, reason, and form relationships. Recognizing that animal research is a complex issue, Blum allows readers to draw their own conclusions. This thought-provoking work is recommended for animal rights and animal research collections.Deborah Emerson, Monroe Community Coll.
