About this book

Biotechnology is expanding at a dizzying pace, driven by the scientific community's dreams of "improving" on nature and corporate America's dreams of profit. Until recently, scarcely a media voice was raised to question it in the United States. But the honeymoon is coming to a close: The number of critics is growing and their criticism is growing louder. This eye-opening collection of essays and interviews brings together the viewpoints of an impressive group of people who speak with localist knowledge and perspective across the fields of science, literature, theology, ecology, and activism.Contributors include author Wendell Berry, biologists Richard Strohman and Stuart Newman, and environmental activist Chris Desser - all of whom are concerned about how biotechnology research and development will affect the delicate balance and diversity of life on Earth. It is clear that the ecological, moral, ethical, and social issues posed by biotechnology can no longer be ignored by concerned citizens. This book will serve as an introduction to - and a springboard for public involvement in - one of the most crucial and perplexing issues of our times.
