Twenty-six critics offer their analyses of the issues, their social and ethical implications, and what people are doing in response.

Full Description


Genetic engineering, animal cloning and new reproductive technologies are being promoted as keys to a brighter future of more productive agriculture, medical miracles and environmental health. Growing numbers of farmers, scientists and concerned citizens diasgree. Farmers worldwide encounter an increasingly monopolized seed and agricultural industry and animal cloning and human genetic engineering raise difficult ethical questions. This book offers an examination of the hidden hazards of the new genetic technologies, and the emergence of worldwide resistance to the new biotechnologies.
