About this book

A brilliant campaigner makes a provocative and impassioned plea for awareness of the environmental, commercial and moral implications of biotechnology. Rifkin argues that we are on the verge of a revolution of unparalleled impact: genetically engineered food, genetically derived energy and genetic therapies will all have a profound effect on our lives. But at what cost? No-one else has laid out the implications so thoroughly and coherently, or with such a profound grasp of the historical context. The Biotech Century provides a chilling and immensely stimulating wake-up call.
