About this product
- DescriptionWith Biotechlogy and Society, Hallam Stevens offers an up-to-date primer to help us understand the interactions of biotechlogy and society and the debates, controversies, fears, and hopes that have shaped how we think about bodies, organisms, and life in the twenty-first century. Stevens addresses such topics as genetically modified foods, cloning, and stem cells; genetic testing and the potential for discrimination; fears of (and, in some cases, hopes for) designer babies; personal gemics; biosecurity; and even biotech art. Taken as a whole, the book presents a clear, authoritative picture of the relationship between biotechlogy and society today, and how our conceptions (and misconceptions) of it could shape future developments. It will be an essential volume for students and scholars working with biotechlogy, while still being accessible to the general reader interested in the details behind breathless news stories about biotech's promise and perils.
