Someday soon, if it hasn't happened in secret already, the first cloned human will be born and mankind will embark on a scientific and moral journey whose destination cannot be foretold.
In A Clone of Your Own, Arlene Judith Klotzko describes the new world of possibilities that can be glimpsed over the horizon. In a lucid and engaging narrative, she explains that the technology to create clones of living beings already exists, inaugurated in 1996 by Dolly the sheep, the first mammal cloned from a single adult cell. Dolly was the culmination of a long scientific quest to understand the puzzle of our development from one cell into a complex organism -- the outcome of a ' fantastic experiment' envisioned six decades before her birth.
