By: Jon Turney
276 pages, 40 illus
Tracing the history of the development of biological science and how it has been received and understood by the public over two centuries, Turney's intriguing book argues that the Frankenstein story governs much of today's debate about the onrushing new age of biotechnology.
`With lucidity and serenity, Turney re-tells the Frankenstein story as a history of apocalyptic anxieties and preposterous prognostications'. Paul Rabinow, University of California, Berkeley.
