Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 9 Up-A collection of articles by specialists in many related occupations. Each essay begins with an introduction to the author and questions to consider while reading it and ends with a periodical bibliography. Each chapter presents a question, the first being "How Will Genetic Engineering Affect Society?" The next chapter explores the ethical implications. The third asks how genetic engineering affects food and agriculture and the final section discusses how it should be regulated. The essays are comprehensive and thought-provoking. DNA discoverer James D. Watson argues that restrictions should not be placed on genetic research. Brian Halweil, a staff researcher at the Worldwatch Institute, discusses how genetically engineered food will not help to end world hunger, while Nobel prize-winner Norman Borlaug disagrees. A useful update to Carol Wekesser's Genetic Engineering (Greenhaven, 1996; o.p.).-Maren Ostergard, Bellevue Regional Library, WA
