Genetics and the Manipulation of Life: The Forgotten Factor of Context
A provocative work that challenges our common assumptions about nature and science, this book is for all who want to understand the biological revolution of the late twentieth century. In this clearly written, well-illustrated book, Holdrege describes, using fascinating examples, how living organisms develop and exist within the context of their environments. In an age when we are able to reshape life on earth, this book offers a deeper, more complex vision of nature, one that can help us establish a more conscious and responsible connection to the world around us.
