The Future of Human Reproduction brings together new work, by an international group of contributors from various fields and perspectives, on ethical, social, and legal issues raised by recent advances in reproductive technology. These advances have put us in a position to choose what kinds of children and parents there should be; the aim of the essays is to illuminate how we should deal with these possibilities for choice. Topics discussed include gender and race selection, genetic engineering, fertility treatment, ovarian tissue transfer, and post-menopausal pregnancy. The central focus of the volume is the interface between reproductive choice and public regulation.

MEDIA REVIEWS
The diversity of subjects offers reflections on the beginnings of life as well as on posterity, hierachy of values and justice in health care resource allocation. Each of them provokes new thoughts and stimulates dialogue. The book does not offer easy or simple solutions. It shows the potential of free choice and yet sends a message of warning. * Maria E. Sokalska, Europn Jnl of Health Law, 7: 2000. *
I would strongly recommend the book to philosophers, bio-ethic specialists, clinicians, social scientists and lawyers. It should not only reach countries represented by its authors, where public discussion has had a longstanding tradition, but also those where the dilemmas of medical progress are not yet reflected in legal regulations. * Maria E. Sokalska, Europn Jnl of Health Law, 7: 2000. *
provides a multidisciplinary survey of the complex issues associated with the novel reporductive choices now available ... it has all the strengths of a collaborative attempt which brings a variety of disciplines and experiences to bear on what is an extremely complex area of decision-making ... a stimulating and thought-provoking book and a real contribution to an area where is as yet little writing of any quality. * Pat Walsh, Medical Law Review, 7, Autumn 1999 *
