About this book

Death has not always been an inevitable component of life. Obligatory death as a result of natural ageing may have not come into existence for more than a billion years after life first appeared, and probably first arose at about the same time that cells began experimenting with sex. This book looks at life and death at the level of the cell and addresses such questions as why organisms age, why they die, and why sex and death go hand in hand. `readable collection of light essays on the several definitions of death and life' Nature
