From the publisher's blurb: 'Provides an account of the story behind genetically engineered plants, covering the controversial birth of the field, its sudden death, phoenix-like reemergence, and ultimate triumph as not only a legitimate field of science but a new tool of multinational corporate interests. Also looks ahead to the potential impact this revolutionary technology will have on human welfare.'
Lurquin's book is the first to describe accurately the history of plant genetic engineering. For students labouring at the bench and getting frustrated at the lack of reproducibility of their experiments, reading this work will provide reassurance. Even scientists who are no longer at the bench... will find it an important reminder that research is a demanding task, with much disappointment and controversy, and few successes. Nature
