Description of this Book

This is not another text in bioethics or medical ethics. Neither is it a text in environmental ethics. This work focuses on biotechnology broadly conceived to include the development of genetically engineered plants and animals, genetically altered animal organs for human transplant, genetic testing and therapy for human beings and, finally, animal and human cloning.

This work covers biotechnology in the broadest sense of the word, contains masterfully selected readings, and challenges the reader to think into the future. It should be very useful to college, graduate, and professional students.--Steven Post
