Editorial Reviews

Review

Scientists and engineers, if they care for a better world, must more fully understand the consequences of their actions. Artists must learn more about science and take up the challenge of illuminating our technological world to those who are shaping it. Both communities, in making their work more accessible to the other, will benefit. Not everyone will agree with the politics argued here -- but that is fine. The need for dialogue has now extended far beyond Snow's The Two Cultures, and so has its urgency. Tactical Biopolitics takes up that challenge; it is one of the most stimulating books I have read in a long time.

(Charles Taylor, Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, UCLA)

Scholars who concentrate on the nonscientific aspects of bioscience and biotechnology are often identified with ethical and legal scholarship focused on narrow range of issues. It is therefore refreshing to find in Tactical Biopolitics a diverse collection of essays that extend the horizon of inquiry into the meanings and impacts of bioscience and biotechnology.

(David Castle The Quarterly Review of Biology)

Tactical Biopolitics is a snapshot of the state-of-the-art at one of the farthest frontiers of interdisciplinary exploration.

(Cheryl A. Kerfeld PLoS Biology)
