Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 7 Up—This title addresses, in an interesting and accessible manner, a scientifically and ethically complex topic. The possibility for the technique to cure disease, to improve our food supply, and to save endangered species are among the issues covered. Human cloning and the future of the science are also addressed. Chapters provide background information and present both sides of the controversy, such as whether genetically modified food should be so labeled, and whether large seed companies, farmers, or the public benefit from the use of cloning in agriculture. Color photos, graphs, diagrams, and highlighted information add visual impact. Useful for reports and general interest.—Ragan O'Malley, Saint Ann's School, Brooklyn, NY

Format: Library Binding Verified Purchase
This book, published in 2008, broaches a topic that has scientific, political, economic, religious, and ethical ramifications and does an admirable job of providing clear explanations of both the science and the issues involved in this complex topic. Cloning's application to the foods industry, the medical and pharmaceutical industries and the future of the technology are examined with scientific accuracy and enough human interest to engage young readers. Photographs of cloned kitty cats and calves, sidebars that are both funny and informative, and an extensive bibliography and list of further resources make this Hot Topics volume a valuable one for anyone who likes to read about controversies generated by modern technology.
