The Unheeded Cry: Animal Consciousness, Animal Pain, and Science

Add to my list

First published in 1989, this is only one of a number of books by Rollin examining the arguments for and against animal use and the unwarranted denial of animal suffering by certain members of the scientific community. Includes an epilogue by the author describing what has changed, and what hasn’t, regarding the use of animals in scientific research and food production. (2d ed.)

We Animals

Add to my list

A selection of annotated photographs from the extensive collection of a photojournalist, taken over many years, that exposes and illuminates the way animals live and die amongst humans, including animals used for food, fashion, entertainment, research and those who have been rescued to live out the rest of their lives in sanctuaries.

Film: Project Nim

Add to my list

Documentary based on Nim Chimpsky, a book detailing the bizarre history of Project Nim, a language research project in which the subject chimpanzee was raised like a human child, taught sign language, and, when funding ran out, placed in laboratory settings.

The Lines We Draw

Add to my list

A short-form nonfiction e-book that evolved out of an extraordinary conversation with the late Dr. Alfred Prince, a hepatitis researcher, about the use of chimpanzees in medical research, and expanded into a larger discussion about the Liberian Civil War, the ethics of vivisection and the contradictions of human love.
