Making Mice:
Standardizing Animals for American Biomedical Research, 1900-1955
Karen Rader

Book Description | Table of Contents
Introduction [HTML] or [PDF format]

ENDORSEMENTS:

"This energetic and elegantly written book represents a landmark study of the role of model organisms in the history of science. Blending biography, institutional history, and history of biology, Rader shows how mice came to feature so prominently in twentieth-century (and, indeed, twenty-first century) biomedical research."--Angela N. H. Creager, Princeton University

"Engagingly written, Making Mice tells the story of the laboratory mouse and its diverse allies. It is a major contribution to the field."--Susan Lindee, University of Pennsylvania

"This is a very engaging account of the rise of the mouse as a star of biomedical research during the twentieth century, and the central role C. C. Little played in 'selling' the mouse (in all senses of the phrase) to both scientists and the public."--Lee Silver, Princeton University
