About this book

A close look at the ethical, legal, social, constitutional, and political implications of biological research. It addresses biopolicy and basic science - including cloning, embryonic stem cell reseach, and experimentation on the human germline - from the perspective of a political scientist.

A thoughtful, intriguing, and provocative analysis that should be widely read by decision-makers, biopolicy analysts, biologists, and social scientists - especially political scientists. - Gary R. Johnson, former editor of Politics and the Life Sciences"
