As the #1 topic in bioethics, cloning has made big news since Dolly's announced birth in 1998. In a new book building on his classic Who's Afraid of Human Cloning?, pioneering bioethicist Gregory E. Pence continues to advocate a reasoned view of cloning. Beginning with his surreal experiences as an expert witness before Congressional and California legislative committees, Pence analyzes the astounding recent progress in animal cloning; the coming surprises about human cloning; the links between animal, stem cell, and human cloning; embryo politics; and other hot topics like artificial wombs and transgenic animals.

Pence rebuts the growing chorus of naysayers headed by Leon Kass, chairman of the President's Council on Bioethics, who attack the biomedical sciences, and explains why cloning will save endangered species and beloved pets, and help future children and people with degenerative diseases.

About the Author:

Gregory E. Pence is a medical ethicist with nearly thirty years of experience teaching and writing in bioethics. He is professor in the School of Medicine and the Department of Philosophy at the University of Alabama-Birmingham. Among his many books for general audiences are Brave New Bioethics (2002), Designer Food (2001), Recreating Medicine (2000), and Who's Afraid of Human Cloning? (1998). He has also published two best-selling textbooks, Classic Cases in Medical Ethics and Classic Works in Medical Ethics, both in numerous editions.

Review:

In Cloning After Dolly, Greg Pence uses his very sharp analytic scalpel to dissect and demolish the arguments of those who oppose cloning and other biotech innovations. (John Robertson, University of Texas Law School)

From Dolly's debut to the present, Greg Pence has been the leading voice of reason and compassion in the cloning debate. Once again he sallies forth with insight and humor to explode myths, expose prejudices, calm primitive fears, and replace science fiction hype with genuine human concerns. This is the most important book about cloning in years. (Mark Eibert, California trial attorney and leading advocate for infertile couples)

Greg Pence is a voice of reason in a debate roiled by emotion. Years from now, Cloning After Dolly will be cited as an example of wise and humane reasoning at a time when many people, including leading bioethicists, allowed fear to rule their thinking. (Ronald M. Green, professor of ethics and religion, Dartmouth College)

Cloning is the political powder keg of biotechnology today, and those in the pro-cloning camp will welcome this case against those they see, in Pence's words, as "the new Puritans of biotech." (Publishers Weekly)

A medical ethicist offers a sober but ultimately encouraging assessment of the future of cloning, arguing ultimately that cloning will change the landscape of medicine and society in beneficial ways. (Forecast)

The book is insightful and does a good job of battling media-fuelled prejudice. (Focus [Science and Technolgy])

...Pence's book is an important contribution to the ongoing debate on cloning, and an interesting read for any concerned individual. (Ken Wessen, The University of Westen Australia, Australia European Legacy)
