The Politics of Biotechnology. Dawkins shows how a diversified gene pool is crucial to food production – and how corporate control of the gene pool threatens our collective security. Behind these issues lies the specter of globalization – transnational corporations freely exploiting the resources and consumers of the world while political power shifts to remote international institutions strictly dedicated to commerce. Dawkins challenges those in power to develop global systems of political discourse in the public interest and shows how each one of us can make a difference.

This volume provides a rigorous analysis and detailed information on biotechnology policy in nine countries.
