About this title

Synopsis:

This accessible and challenging book looks beyond the immediate question of cloning to the broader questions of using genetic engineering to alter the evolution of the human species. The book covers both the hands-on scientific details and the many ethical and social concerns. It includes a discussion of recent successes in cloning large animals and examines the implications for medicine and for our future. Contributors include many of the world leaders in the field: Lee Hood, French Anderson, Mario Capecchi, Dan Koshland, Michael Rose, Lee Silver, and James Watson.

Review:

The book should be commended for bringing to the fore the possibilityof germline manipulation within the next decade (New Genetics & Society)

...interesting reading. (Heredity)

The participants, mostly drawn from Us academic institutions, fall into three categories: eminent practising scientists; panelists, including James Watson, the co-discoverer of the structure of DNA; and commentators- scientists, ethcicists and theologians (Nature)
