Overview

Through the Looking Glass examines the scientific, political, and public education problems in trying to design environments that ensure the "psychological well-being" of captive nonhuman primates—as mandated by the 1985 amendments to the Animal Welfare Act.

Issues addressed include the USDA's views and aims with respect to the 1985 amendments; public reaction to primate research that has led to public policy changes; development of institutional programs to promote psychological well-being; and the challenges in implementing the new regulations.
