Brute Science: Dilemmas of Animal Experimentation

Brute Science: Dilemmas of Animal Experimentation

by Hugh LaFollette and Niall Shanks
Routledge 1997 (Philosophical Issues in Science Series)

A good but very academic book.

"This is as important a book in applied ethics as one can hope to find. It mounts an an impressive scientific and moral case against the current practice of animal experimentation, demanding that we either provide an adequate defense of that practice or radically change it." - James P. Sterba (Philosophy, University of Notre Dame)
