Description - Biotechnology and Culture by

With every new media frenzy over surrogacy, cloning, organ transplatation and genetic modification of plants, people raise such troubling questions such as, can a child have two mothers? Should we learn out genetic futures? Are organs gifts or commercial products? This book traces such questions and their political and personal stakes over the 20th century and in several contemporary locations.
