Recipient of a 2007 IPPY Silver Medal, INTERVENTION challenges two of the most sacred tenets of modern society, innovation and technology, from the perspective of the unique risks they present. Using... More > genetic engineering as its model, it paints a vivid picture of the scientific uncertainties that biotech risk evaluations dismiss or ignore, and lays bare the power and money conflicts between academia, industry and regulators that have sped these risky innovations to the market. Intervention champions an alternative method for assessing the risks of technology, developed by the world's top risk experts, that can eliminate such conflicts, help regain public trust in science and government, and drive research and development toward more useful, safer products. "Perhaps the most balanced and readable look yet at assessing the risks of genetic engineering." Michael Rogers, MSNBC.com "I learned more about biotechnology from this book than any other I've read ..." - Alex Steffen, Worldchanging.com< Less
