Rights and Liberties in the Biotech Age: Why We Need a Genetic
Bill of Rights
Edited By Sheldon Krimsky and Peter Shorett
Foreword by Bill McKibben
Rowman & Littlefield Publishers
Science is rapidly transforming our communities, our economies,
and the natural environment. Corporations have rushed untested
and unlabeled genetically modified food into the global marketplace.
We are experimenting with species-altering changes to the human
genome that may redesign what it means to be human.
Rights and Liberties in the Biotech Age argues for a set of
principles to protect our individual liberties and communitarian
interests against both the misuse and neglectful use of genetic
technology. Building on the notion of a Genetic Bill of Rights,
two dozen leading scientists, scholars, and public interest advocates
examine the challenges we face in governing the future of genetics.
