When is animal research necessity and when is it cruelty?Animal Models of Human Psychology is a breakthrough text that presents the first empirically based system of analysis to determine the answer to this much-debated question.Taking psychological eating disorders as a case study, Shapiro examines the costs and benefits associated with using nonhuman animals to study human phenomena. He uses social scientific analytic methods and original data to assess the effectiveness of current research. Shapiro utilizes a combination of historical, conceptual, ethical, and political analyses as they apply to the use of animal models. This combination of elements makes Animal Models of Human Psychology a revolutionary text, which criticizes both the scientists who use animal models, as well as animal support groups which condemn such activities without a rigorous analysis of each situation.The book frames the discussion in a uniquely intelligent manner, and should be highly valuable for anyone interested in the general subject of animal rights and scientific advances.Kenneth J. Shapiro is the founding editor of Society and Animal and the co-founding editor of Journal of Applied Animal Welfare Science. He is currently the executive director of Psychologists for the Ethical Treatment of Animals. This is Shapiro's third book.
