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.
