Sex, Drugs and DNA by Michael Stebbins
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


In a frank, edgy and entertaining style that pulls no punches Michael Stebbins says what most scientists and politicians are afraid to about what research can and, perhaps more importantly, cannot deliver. He debunks the myths surrounding some of the most controversial topics, from sexuality, race and genetic modification to stem cells, cloning, IQ, animal experimentation, fertility treatment, creationism and bioterrorism. Having worked at the heart of government science, at the most prestigious science publishing company in the world, and in one of the world's leading biology institutions, Stebbins has a unique view of the politics, culture and reach of science. He concludes that truly novel and necessary work is being hobbled and hence calls for wide reaching changes in science education, funding, legislation, publishing and promulgation.
