The Human Use of Animals. Second Edition, reports the facts on some of the most compelling and difficult issues about animal welfare that confront society today. Its 16 case studies explore a variety of controversies about the human uses of animals that have emerged over the past four decades. The book begins with a lengthy exploration of applicable ethical theory. It then presents the facts of the 16 cases, followed by analysis of each case's theoretical and practical ethical issues. This volume offers a discussion of controversies within a range of contexts, including biomedical, behavioral, and wildlife research: cosmetic safety testing: education: entertainment (zoos and circuses); the food industry: commerce: companion animals: and animal uses in religious practices.

Dresser is the Daniel Noyes Kirby Professor of Law and Professor of Ethics in Medicine at Washington University in St. Louis
