The Ethics of Animal Experimentation. A Critical Analysis and Constructive Christian Proposal.
Oxford University Press, 2005. 240p. Hardback. Series: AAR Academy Series. The time is ripe for a new book on the ethics of animal experiments, and this is it. Yarri's work is comprehensive,interdisciplinary, and pragmatic. She writes with admirable clarity, avoiding the pitfalls of polemics and prejudice. This book is deeply informed about recent developments in science, legal theory, and public policy. And it is eloquent about the contributions of theology and philosophy to our understanding of animals and their place in our world. Indeed, Yarri has succeeded in writing a text that functions as both an excellent introduction to the field of animal welfare and an indispensable aid to the promotion of more humane practices in colleges and corporations. She points no fingers, but she does point the way forward to a better understanding of the scope of our moral obligations. Stephen H. Webb, author of On God and Dogs: A Christian Theology of Compassion for Animals (Publisher's information).
