Since 9/11 and the U.S. anthrax attacks, public, and policy concerns about the security threats posed by biological weapons has increased significantly. As a result, there are now active international deliberations about what restrictions should be placed on the openness of scientific research. Biotechnology, Security and the Search for Limits examines these security implications for life science research as well as the methodological issues associated with conducting social research. In doing so the book considers the place of biological and social research in creating and responding to societal problems through drawing on diverse academic traditions such as discourse analysis, social problems studies, philosophy, action research, science and technology studies, politics, and public policy.

Book Description Palgrave Macmillan, UK, 2007. Hardcover. Condition: New. 214 pages. Available Now. Book Description: How might the growing scientific understanding of life processes facilitate the development of novel weapons? What might be done to prevent this outcome? How should research be undertaken into such possibilities? Biotechnology, Security and the Search for Limits examines growing concerns since 2001 regarding the international security of life science research in relation to biological weapons and bioterrorism. It does so through undertaking a novel method of social research with leading scientists. The book combines an examination of threats from bioweapons with a thoroughgoing examination of prospects and problems with a range of social research methods. In considering both research methods and security threats, Biotechnology, Security and the Search for Limits will appeal to those concerned with social problems, the sociology of science, conversation and discourse analysis, security studies, public policy, and action research. : About the Author: BRIAN RAPPERT is an Associate Professor of Science, Technology and Public Affairs in the Department of Sociology& Philosophy at the University of Exeter, UK.
