This comprehensive textbook covers the ethical issues involved in using animals for research, food production, sports, and as companions. Although theoretical aspects of animal ethics are presented, the focus of the book is the application of ethics to real-life situations. A balanced presentation of animal rights and animal welfare viewpoints is provided. Review and discussion questions help students develop their critical-thinking skills. Case studies provide the opportunity to consider real-world ethical issues and how they can be resolved.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very informative Aug. 16 2009
By Vision Holder - Published on Amazon.com
This textbook does an excellent job clearly defining and distinguishing "animal rights" and "animal welfare" and gives a detailed historical background of the issues. It also goes into detail about the Animal Welfare Act (AWA), IACUCs, other legislation, government agencies, animal rights organizations, and more. It's too bad everyone won't read this book. If everyone understood the issues, rather than just getting one-sided, inaccurate views from fliers or the Internet, public opinion would be much more well-rounded.

1.0 out of 5 stars The binding, not the book Dec 12 2006
By K. Marks - Published on Amazon.com
I ordered this book directly from Amazon.com. Within 2 months of very light use the binding has failed. I have brought this book to school only 4 times and read just a few chapters out of it - the rest of the time it is on my bookshelf. However, the pages are coming out and because it's been over 30 days Amazon will not refund my order. Textbooks, especially those I bought brand new and for $70, should last more than two months! Other class members who bought this book elsewhere have not had similar problems; use caution when buying this book directly from Amazon.
