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.
