Anti-genetiX: The Emergence of the Anti-GM Movement

Front Cover
Ashgate, Jan 1, 2000 - Political Science - 161 pages
This text was prompted by the emergence of two global issues: the patenting of life forms via biotechnology; and the global crisis of natural and agricultural biodiversity. The book explores the emergence of a social movement in response to these issues by connecting three usually disconnected theoretical literatures on expert systems, global governance and new social movments, which can themselves benefit by being brought together. Thus, the book is structured so as to develop these concerns through a case study.
