About this book

By demystifying genetic engineering and exploring the basic biology underlying the living world, Curran explains how clones and cloning technology are in many ways extensions of processes occurring constantly in nature: Used wisely these processes have the potential to bring enormous benefits; abused, they carry with them potential dangers which we ignore at our peril.
