Essential reading. A comprehensive ethical analysis of animal experiments. Bound to become a classic. --Sir David Madden, Senior Member, St Antony's College, Oxford At a time when the necessity for animal experimentation has been called more and more into doubt, the Linzeys show how deep-seated research paradigms, institutional inertia, and money from the biomedical industry can persuade an esteemed university like Oxford to press on with practices that to any dispassionate observer must seem barbaric. Their analysis is backed up by an impressive set of essays by philosophers, lawyers, and scientists. --J. M. Coetzee, Nobel Laureate for Literature
