A groundbreaking work, Redesigning Humans tackles the
controversial subject of engineering the human germline --
the process of permanently altering the genetic code of an
individual so that the changes are passed on to the
offspring. Gregory Stock, an expert on the implications of
recent advances in reproductive biology, has glimpsed the
inevitable future of biomedical engineering. Within decades,
Stock asserts, technological advances will bring meaningful
changes to our offspring; this scientific revolution
promises to fundamentally alter the human species. With
recent findings presented in a new afterword, Stock's
provocative assessment cuts through the debate to envision
an age of radical biotechnological advancement and
unprecedented human choice.
