"This two-volume set builds on the¿earlier volumes, updates and expands the material to include a more¿international perspective on regulatory oversight, important model systems, and research areas where non-human primates play a pivotal role. High-resolution color images support the text. The first volume contains 19 contributions, beginning with a history and including discussion of laws and regulations and of non-human primate taxonomy, social behavior, reproduction and breeding, and housing, as well as clinical and surgical techniques, anesthesia, and safety. The second volume, on diseases, contains 18 contributions on the specifics of research pertaining to tuberculosis, parasitic diseases, malaria, atherosclerosis, diabetes and obesity, nervous system disorders, and drug and alcohol addiction, among other topics."--Reference and Research Book News, August 2012, page 211
