by Jeremy Rifkin

Condition: Good+


London: Phoenix, 1999 An ex-library copy of this book. 271 very clean pages inc. index. Library stamps. This book has been laminated. A very good study copy. --- A brilliant, provocative and far-reaching examination of biotechnology and its economic and social implications.

But with each step into this new era, we must ask ourselves: At what cost?
