Stephen Webster is a member of the Science Communication Group in Imperial College, London.
Webster provides a thought-provoking view of the traditional ideas about biologic science and then goes a step further in discussing the ethical and political consequences of biology... this lively and controversial collection of readings will make the theories of biology much more alive. Choice
