Booklist Review

Gr. 9^-12. This isn't an easy read. Part of the At Issues series, it includes 11 articles by experts in science, technology, religion, law, politics, ethics, and journalism. The bio-ethics can get heavy, steeped in "medical philosophy and clinical theory." Some diagrams would have helped with the science and genetics. However, some of the authors give a good overview of the issues, and older teens who have followed the heated debates about Dolly, the first successfully cloned sheep, will be fascinated by the moral arguments. Is it wrong to clone people? --Hazel Rochman
