About this book

The use of primates in research is an ongoing controversy. This book, by the Pulitzer Prize winner (the winning articles inspired this book) assesses the often caustic debate over the use of primates in scientific research, and examines the personalities and issues behind the headlines. The author focuses on researchers forced to conduct their work behind barbed wire and alarmed systems, animals rights activists ranging from the moderate to the highly radical, and some of the most remarkable chimpanzees involved. The research community and its activist critics are invariably portrayed as rival camps. In reality it appears that there are people on both sides working within the complex middle territory.

... the book represents high-quality journalism - rich details, smooth writing, and general accuracy... Nature A brilliant and unblinking look at one of the most disturbing issues of the 1990s, penned by one of the nation's most distinguished science journalists. Keay Davidson, Science Writer, San Francisco Examiner, and co-author of Wrinkles in Time The Monkey Wars will make you see the whole question of animal research - and much that has been done in the name of science - quite differently.
