Remaking Eden

by Lee M. Silver (Author)



Book Description
In this brilliant, provocative, and necessary book, Lee M. Silver takes a
cautiously optimistic look at the scientific advances that will allow us to
engineer life in ways that were unimaginable just a few short years ago--indeed,
in ways that go far beyond cloning. Could a child have two genetic mothers? Will
parents someday soon be able to choose not only the physical characteristics of
their children-to-be, but their personalities and talents as well? Will genetic
enhancement ultimately lead to the dominance of a "genetic elite?" In clear,
engaging, and accessible prose, Silver demystifies the science behind these and
other thrinlling and frightening new possibilities, in a book that is essential
reading for anyone who wants to understand the hopes and dilemmas of the
American family in the twenty-first century.
