Animals in Early Childhood Education (Routledge Research in Early Childhood
This book is a research-based text about animals in early childhood education for researchers, academics and postgraduate students. It includes philosophical, historical and socio-political ideas about animals in early childhood education. Written from a pragmatic perspective, the author outlines the core themes including; animal-assisted education, pedagogies of teaching and learning about animals and the ethics associated with animals in early education settings.

The Ethics of Animal Research: Exploring the Controversy (Basic
A balanced, accessible discussion of whether and on what grounds animal research can be ethically justified.An estimated 100 million nonhuman vertebrates worldwide―including primates, dogs, cats, rabbits, hamsters, birds, rats, and mice―are bred, captured, or otherwise acquired every year for research purposes. Much of this research is seriously detrimental to the welfare of these animals, causing pain, distress, injury, or death. This book explores the ethical controversies that have arisen over animal research, examining closely the complex scientific, philosophical, moral, and legal issues involved.Defenders of animal research face a twofold challenge: they must make a compelling case for the unique benefits offered by animal research; and they must provide a rationale for why these benefits justify treating animal subjects in ways that would be unacceptable for human subjects. This challenge is at the heart of the book. Some contributors argue that it can be met fairly easily; others argue that it can never be met; still others argue that it can sometimes be met, although not necessarily easily. Their essays consider how moral theory can be brought to bear on the practical ethical questions raised by animal research, examine the new challenges raised by the emerging possi...

The Animal Research War
When overzealous animal rights activists threaten one of America's best-known scientists and academic leaders, he collaborates with an analyst of animal rights to produce a personal account of what it is like to be a medical researcher targeted by such a powerful movement. This thoughtful and surprising book analyzes the effect of animal extremism on the world's scientists, their institutions, and professional societies. P. Michael Conn and James V. Parker analyze the motivations of animal rights extremists while also delving into the changing ways in which the public and legal system views animals. The Animal Research War counters the lies propagated by extremist animal rights organizations: for example, the fact that animals comprise only 6% of any medical research, and very little harm comes to animals under experimentation. This book is an intriguing and compelling platform from which to better understand the plight of the modern scientist and the risk to scientific advancement if animal extremism is allowed to win.
