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.

Chapter 9-Acts of Self-Determination and Self-Defense: Indigenous Peoples Responses to Biocolonialism was authored by IPCB's Executive Director, Debra Harry.
