The macroeconomic and geopolitical elements of the biotechnology revolution have not been given the serious attention that they merit. This book addresses these subjects of prime importance and so touches us all, not only the researchers, businessmen and politicians and our children. In addition, International Biotechnology adds a philosophical and human dimension to what could be viewed as a purely academic subject. Key points are included with each chapter so that for the time poor reader, the main points are made clear. By employing the references provided, which are all downloadable from the world wide web, one can delve even more deeply into aspects that appear most relevant at the time. Overall, International Biotechnology is an excellent resource to either read cover to cover, or keep on the shelf to dip into when the need arises.
