From Publishers Weekly As President Bush tries to make up his mind over the stem cell controversy, the issue remains headline news. The Human Embryonic Stem Cell Debate: Science, Ethics, and Public Policy, edited by social ethics academics Suzanne Holland, Karen Lebacqz and Laurie Zoloth and third in MIT's Basic Bioethics series edited by Glenn McGee and Arthur Caplan, gathers 20 essays by scholars (including the editors) of theology, biology, medicine, medical and bioethics, philosophy and other disciplines. Fran‡oise Baylis discusses the National Bioethics Advisory Commission's recommendation that stem cell research be federally funded. Rabbi Elliott N. Dorff analyzes the debate through a Jewish theological lens. Thomas B. Okarma, president and CEO of Geron Corporation, a biotechnology corporation that initiated stem cell research in 1996, offers "A Primer on the Technology and Its Medical Applications." Others weigh in with Christian, Roman Catholic, historical, feminist, social justice and public policy perspectives. Three illus. Sept.) Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information, Inc. Review "The struggle over stem cells is a sharply pointed invitation to determine what sense we shall make of our origin and our end. This carefully designed collection of deeply thoughtful essays is a worthy reply."--James Lindemann Nelson, Professor, Department of Philosophy, Michigan State University "The Human Embryonic Stem Cell Debate is the definitive work on a timely and politically charged issue. The book presents a myriad of views and brings a subtlety and even-handedness to the scientific, religious, and social issues involved that is sorely needed. Of particular significance is the fact that the book combines various religious views with more secular social and scientific considerations in such a way as to create a complete picture of the debate."--David Magnus, Bioethics Center, University of Pennsylvania "This book is a valuable collection of diverse ethical and religious perspectives that captures much of the initial foundation work surrounding the discovery of human embryonic stem cells. The range of views represented and the topics considered show why stem cells have attracted so much public attention and controversy. The book will be useful both to those unfamiliar with the specifics of the debate as well as to ethicists and religious thinkers dealing with the implications of scientific developments."--Audrey R. Chapman, Ph.D., Director, Science and Human Rights Program, American Association for the Advancement of Science Program in Science and Religion --This text refers to the edition.
