A New Politics of Reordering Life & The Democratic Challenge

Edging towards BioUtopia interrogates one of the most important environmental conflicts in recent science and technology history: the controversy about a proposed genetically engineered "futurenatural." In a revealing behind-the-scenes account, this book investigates the political technologies and regulatory maneuvers in Australia which aim to contain and brush aside probing public debate. The book offers a unique perspective on the Genetic Modifications debate, and is written by a renowned expert in the interaction between science and politics.
