Reviews

"A useful contribution. Gives both a name and a direction to a more socially conscious ethical and political framework to the controversial issues posed by developments in genomics."-- (09/04/2018)
"With the rapid development of new biotechnologies like CRISPR, Beyond Bioethics makes a timely call for a novel take on bioethics capable of addressing the significant sociopolitical implications of these technologies. . . . Bridging together thinkers across the humanities and sciences divide, Beyond Bioethics models a progressive, interdisciplinary approach to bioethics that extends beyond a focus on the individual toward a 'new biopolitics' of the global, the collective."-- (09/13/2018)
"As an argument for a particular focus in bioethics, with each chapter serving as a case providing an example of this focus, Beyond Bioethics is convincing. . . . covers a lot of theoretical ground, and is clear and enjoyable to read without sacrificing intelligence. It will certainly spark both scholarly discussion and student interest."--Quarterly Review of Biology
