From Library Journal:

Anderson claims that humans are increasingly affecting the "natural" evolution of living things. We clear forests, breed animals and cross-breed plants, use pesticides and herbicides, and maintain gene and sperm banks and practice other forms of biotechnology. By his estimate, each day we eliminate one species and this rate will grow to one per hour (even as we create new ones). Anderson believes we must govern the biosphere rationally and not let massive change just happen. He doesn't preach, but he advances such notions as "global culture," "biopolitics," and "bioethics" to help us confront what is happening. He deals not with answers but with issues and new ways of looking at them. Essential for public and academic libraries. Daniel LaRossa, Connetquot P.L., Bohemia, N.Y.
