"Jonathan Tucker does a remarkable job bringing a unified approach to this multiauthor book. Scholars of biosecurity and biosafety, members of institutional review boards, and national and international agencies will find this volume indispensable."--Harvey Rubin, Director, Institute for Strategic Threat Analysis and Response (ISTAR), University of Pennsylvania
" Innovation, Dual Use, and Security is a fitting memorial to Jonathan Tucker, an international authority on curbing chemical and biological weapons. Most writing on security aspects of emerging technologies is marred by gross generalizations on boons and banes. In contrast, this book is an exercise in rigorous differentiation. It offers lucid takes on the benefits and dangers of fourteen variants of biotechnology and provides pragmatic advice on reducing risks of malicious misuse."--Kenneth A. Oye, Director of the MIT Program on Emerging Technologies
"This excellent book not only offers fresh and comprehensive views but does so with a consistency that is rare in multi-author efforts. It's hard to think of a more timely or authoritative volume at a time when global risk is as high as it has been for a generation, and clear analysis, solid understanding, and creative perspectives are at a premium. Here's a baseline for our thinking about what comes next."--Nigel Cameron, President and CEO, Center for Policy on Emerging Technologies
"…The book gives an excellent comprehensive analysis of the dual-use dilemma for technologies that have not only beneficial uses but also the potential to cause serious harm. It is a valuable resource for bioethics or biotechnology courses and should surely generate great class discussions." -- M. C. Pavao, Choice
" Innovation, Dual Use, and Security was brought to completion under extraordinary circumstances. Quibbles aside, it is stuffed with fascinating information interpreted by people who know their chosen subjects. It is well written, well edited, and even well copy edited. I have seen no better book on this subject." -- Robert Hunt Sprinkle, BioScience
