Biotechnology and the Challenge of Property addresses the question of how the advancement of property law is capable of controlling the interests generated by the engineering of human tissues. Through a comparative consideration of non-Western societies and industrialized cultures, this book addresses the impact of modern biotechnology, and its legal accommodation on the customary conduct and traditional beliefs which shape the lives of different communities. Nwabueze provides an introduction to the legal regulation of the evolving uses of human tissues, and its implications for traditional knowledge, beliefs and cultures.

About the Author:

Remigius N. Nwabueze is City Solicitors' Educational Trust Lecturer in Property Law, at the University of Southampton, UK. He has published in the areas of Regulatory and Ethical Issues in Biomedical Research or Bioethics, Medical Law and Torts.

Review:

'This book draws attention to the consequences of using the concept of property to deal with ethical and policy issues raised by new biotechnology. It combines an analysis of the common law with a discussion of new legal initiatives designed to assist developing countries in dealing with these issues. This book adds a distinct voice to the debate about the legal tools we should use to control new biotechnologies in a developing world context and should appeal to all those who are interested in these issues.' Trudo Lemmens, University of Toronto
