About the Author:

Nicola Barber is an experienced author and editor of children's non-fiction books.

From School Library Journal:

Gr 5-8–Each title successfully presents both sides of a contemporary issue. Cloning provides helpful definitions and explanations of genetic engineering and looks at the numerous ways this process influences our lives from animal and research cloning to embryo testing and genetically modified foods. Death Penalty discusses the use of and debate about the death penalty throughout history, raising awareness of religious perspectives, costs, connections to race and poverty, and the concept of justice. In Animal Rights information about whether or not animals have the ability to suffer pain, issues of morality, and other concepts are presented, providing a foundation for readers to ponder the use of animals in product testing, whether we should eat meat or use animal products, and other concerns. Euthanasia examines what constitutes a good or bad death, medical intervention, living wills, and legal concerns about assisted suicide. The texts are straightforward, easy to understand, and have an appealing format. Chapters progress logically with helpful headings and subheadings. The numerous text boxes, captioned color photos, and reproductions add additional information.–Susan Shaver, Hemingford Public Schools, NEα(c) Copyright 2013.

Book Description Rosen Publishing Group, 2012. Hardback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Both genetic engineering and cloning have many applications and are now widely used in medicine, industry, and agriculture. In genetic engineering particular genes are manipulated or transferred from one living thing to another for a specific purpose. This process produces a completely new set of genes. Cloning is a form of genetic engineering that produces exact copies a clone is an organism that is an exact genetic copy of another. For supporters of genetic engineering, developments in this science have opened up a world of possibilities for the future. But for its opponents, there are serious concerns about its safety, and about the moral rights and wrongs of "tampering with nature." This enlightening volume offers arguments for both sides of the cloning and genetic engineering debate. Among the subjects examined are the human genome, transgenics, reproductive cloning, research cloning, stem cell therapy, genetic disease and testing, gene therapy, plant and animal pharming, genetically modified animals and crops, and gene doping.
