Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

‘A thoughtful, intelligent, highly readable work written by someone with impeccable credentials...In the 1960s Rachel Carson's Silent Spring launched the avalanche of the environmental movement. Perhaps Body Shopping will do the same for the body rights campaign.' - Fay Weldon, Financial Times Our tissues, genes, and organs are becoming, in the words of the head of one pharmaceutical company, ‘the currency of the future. From the trafficking of women for their eggs to ‘beauty junkies, Donna Dickenson reveals the myriad and often ingenious ways that body parts are converted into profits. But despite what the media – or even your doctor – might say, the current biotechnological gold rush is not inevitable and can be resisted. The fight isn't over yet. Indeed, its hardly begun. Donna Dickenson is the first woman recipient of the International Spinoza Lens award for her contribution to public debate on ethics. American by birth, she is Professor Emerita of Medical Ethics and Humanities at the University of London, UK.
