About this book

This book analyzes the effect of the animal rights movement on the world's scientists, their institutions, and professional societies. "The Animal Research War" traces the evolution of the animal rights movement, profiles its leadership, and reveals the truth behind university animal research.

It is time for scientists, patients and all who abhor the use of terror to stand up for the future of medical research. - Sir Colin Blakemore, FMedSci FRS, Chief Executive, Medical Research Council, London.

"Conn and Parker unfold stories of attacks and put to rest some of the tired myths of laboratory animals... It is extremely important that an informed public know what is really going on, and how it impacts on the future of healthcare and medical advances." - States United for Biomedical Research.
