This book challenges the legitimacy of genetic engineering. It highlights countless scientific flaws in many of the recent developments in agricuture, medicine, and new reproductive technologies, and shows that the degree of uncertainty involved in genetic manipulation is far greater than is generally assumed. The book also explores the social and ethical implications of genetic engineering.
An important and timely intervention into current debates on biotechnology. Written in a clear and accessible style it deserves to be read widely by all those interested in the ecological, social, and ethical implications of biotechnology."" -- John O'Neill, Professor of Philosophy at Lancaster University "Read this book and you will never casually scan another news article about the wonders of the new genetics again. Bowring will make you think long and hard about what it is we are doing, and what it is we think we are doing as we strive to map, control and remake ourselves and our world." - Barbara Katz Rothman, Professor of Sociology, City University of new York
