Engineering the Human Germline

An Exploration of the Science and Ethics of Altering the Genes We Pass to Our Children

Edited by Gregory Stock and John Campbell

This accessible and challenging book looks beyond the immediate question of cloning to the broader questions of using genetic engineering to alter the evolution of the human species. The book covers both the hands-on scientific details and the many ethical and social concerns. It includes a discussion of recent successes in cloning large animals and examines the implications for medicine and for our future. Contributors include many of the world leaders in the field: Lee Hood, French Anderson, Mario Capecchi, Dan Koshland, Michael Rose, Lee Silver, and James Watson.
