In Human Cloning a panel of distinguished philosophers, medical ethicists, religious thinkers, and social critics tackle the thorny problems raised by the now real possibility of human cloning. In their wide ranging reviews, the distinguished contributors critically examine the major arguments for and against human cloning, probe the implications of such a procedure for society, and critically evaluate the "Report and Recommendations of the National Bioethics Advisory Commission." The debate includes both religious and secular arguments, as well as an outline of the history of the cloning debate and a discussion of human cloning's impact on our sense of self and our beliefs about the meaning of life.

MEDIA REVIEWS
". . . an interesting and accessible read. . .chapters provide a useful 'springboard' to encourage further debate and a deeper understanding of the issues."-Bulletin of Medical Ethics

"By including articles that cover a wide range of analytical perspective and moral positions, this volume provides a good overview of the debate on human cloning. George Annas argues that human cloning should be banned because it "radically alters the very definition of what it is to be be human" Michael Tooley finds it morally acceptable, and points out its potential benefits to society. Jan Hellerargues that the common religious objections against human cloning lack substantive moral support. The other three contributors aim primarily to situate the discussion within a larger historical framework." - Quarterly Review of Biology

"A volume in the Biomedical Ethics Review series, this book examines cloning from a number of disciplinary perspectives, including historical, ethical, and religious. In the context of a rapidly burgeoning literature on the topic of cloning and related issues, this addition is welcome in bringing together these different approaches. ...The value of this collection of paper lies at least partly in its reflection on the main themes and trends; partly in its analysis of forms of argument and their applicability to the topic." -International Digest of Health Legislation
