Amazon Description

When is animal research a necessity and when is it cruelty? Aiming to answer this question, this work takes psychological eating disorders as a case study. The text examines the costs and benefits associated with using non-human animals to study human phenomena. The author uses a combination of historical, conceptual, ethical and political analyses as they apply to the use of animal models.
