9780124967250: Policy Controversy in Biotechnology: An Insider's View (Biotechnology Intelligence Unit)

Policy Controversy in Biotechnology: An Insider's View is a penetrating analysis of how the United States' and international public policies are formulated. It provides revealing accounts of the approach to science and technology taken by the Clinton Administration and by supra-national or international organizations such as the European Union and United Nations. The book is also a primer on biotechnology--what it is and can accomplish and common misconceptions about it.
One of the book's greatest strengths is the last chapter's discussion of possible remedies for the public policy malise found in the United States, Europe, and elsewhere. The book suggests a multi-faceted strategy, which includes better communication between scientists and the public; greater activism by scientific institutions (academies, journals, and professional associations); more involvement by the public in government policy-making; and both general and specific executive and legislative reforms.

Provides a true insiders view of U.S. public policy-making
Yields a look at how bad policy judgments affect the real world
Offers remedies and solutions to the conflict between science and politics

Review:

This book is a true insider's view of the policy controversies behind the regulations...Henry Miller is eminently qualified to lead readers into this field...The book is a fascinating account of how these issues have been faced and are still being fought out in the U.S. It is set out in excellent scientific fashion, divided into five sections with 17 essays, every one worth reading...I can honestly admit that I took the book to bed with me and carried on reading...Dr. Miller has produced an excellent book that has lessons for us all. I recommend it as a good read, good science, and good sense."
--CHEMISTRY IN INDUSTRY

"...the prose is highly readable and not at all technical. Miller himself was heavily involved in the development of federal biotechnology regulation during the 1980s and is a harsh critic of deviations from the generally sensible decisions that resulted."
