'In this brilliant and lucid book, Mulkay achieves the ultimate goal of science and technology studies: he gives us engaged yet dispassionate account of a multifaceted biomedical controversy.' Ruth Schwartz Cowan, State University of New York, Stony Brook
'As a major contribution to an understanding of embryo research, and to the complexities of parliamentary decision making more broadly, this book is highly impressive. For anyone concerned with developments in research on human embryos and reproductive techniques, it will be an essential read.' Christine Hine, Brunel University
'It is a scholarly contribution I expect will be of long-lasting value that Mulkay has compiled so rich a description of the ins and outs, the dates and the debates, the players and the positions in this singular moral controversy ... Mulkay's account is exemplary of the best ... Detailed, perceptive and thorough, it is a valuable portrait of an unusual public debate in Britain.' Sarah Franklin, Public Understanding of Science
