Product Description

Review

"This text serves those well versed in technoscience and science technology studies who are interested in the role of the media as well as those well versed in visual and cultural studies interested in the compelling case of genetic science in contemporary culture. The text is based on a wide range of well-documented fieldwork and is a good start to the analysis in this cross-disciplinary area of media and technoscience."

 -- Annette Burfoot, Queens University, Canadian Journal of Sociology, Vol. 33, No. 3, 2008

 

If there is any general conclusion one can reach about contemporary genomics,it is that it is composed of many splinters of interest, commitment and belief. It brings together disparate expectations and dreams, in a sometimes fantastic way, in sources ranging from the seemingly sedate transcriptions of committee meeting minutes, to stealth Internet sites, to peer-reviewed papers in Science. Haran, Kitzinger, McNeil and O’Riordan have captured this crazy quilt aesthetic in a book that is now required reading for anyone interested in understanding the public worlds of human cloning. Science as Culture, Susan Lindee
