Media reviews

"For too long, animal rights activists have practised harassment, intimidation and violence behind a smokescreen of concern about animal welfare. The Animal Research War exposes the tactics of animal extremists for what they are – terrorism. The actions of a tiny minority have seriously set back the progress of research aimed at reducing the suffering of people and animals. It is time for scientists, patients and all who abhor the use of terror to stand up for the future of medical research."
– Dr. Colin Blakemore FMedSci FRS, Former Chief Executive, Medical Research Council, UK

"The Animal Research War makes a compelling case that animal extremism, with its threat to biomedical research and the improvement of human and animal health, is an international problem."
– Dr Christian Bréchot, Director General of the French National Institute of Health and Medical Research (Inserm)

"In chapter after chapter, the authors unfold stories of attacks, from threats in the night, to baseball bat assaults, to the destruction of years of research. The authors also relate stories of individual bravery and, yes, even corporate strength in the face of threats to employees, customers and suppliers. Equally, they explain the process of protecting animals in research and they put to rest some of the tired myths of laboratory animals myths that animal extremists need to perpetuate in order to validate their own dire actions. We hope you will read, learn from, and enjoy The Animal Research War. 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. We hope you will also pass it along and help spread truth."
– States United for Biomedical Research

"The authors of The Animal Research War are to be congratulated for exposing the tactics of animal extremists, and in particular the extent to which they are prepared to go in their effort to abolish all use of experimental animals. The actions of this tiny minority to deny the ongoing importance of animal research for progress in human and animal health are a disservice to us all."
Canadians for Health Research

"It's a cracking good read and I would recommend it to anyone seeking to encourage serious debate on the issues surrounding animal research."
– Kirk Leech, Research Defence Society News

"The Animal Research War offers an invaluable resource that will not be soon replaced."
– Deborah C. Runkle, Science

"The Animal Research War is a very easy read and provides a compelling insight into animal rights extremism."
