A comprehensive overview of the main topics presented in the book, briegly outlining each contributor's focus. I particularly enjoyed the fact that edited transcripts of the discussions which took place at the conference itself were appended at the end of each part. ...it has none of the weaknesses usually associated with the "philosopher's outflow". Jeremy Rifkin suceeds in delineating his views on the various aspects of genetic engineering in a very systematic way, with the use of particulary pertinent examples. I must admit that it is the chapter which most appealed to me, and I would strongly recommen it to any reader who cannot spare the time to read the whole book. Animal Genetic Engineering: Of Pigs, Oncomice and Men is a high quality book, in which the editors kep their promises to the reader.
