Edging Towards BioUtopia is the first comprehensive social history of biotechnology development and regulation in Australia. The book investigates, dissects and records the rise of Australian genetic engineering interests and practices within broader global trends and the historical record of modern science.
It is a unique foundational book about the rise of a new democratic challenge to agendas dominated by political interests, especially with regard to genetic engineering and the environmental release of genetically modified organisms.
Hindmarsh’s book is a timely contribution to wider dialogues of how society and governance grapples with profound questions when faced with the proposition of a biosociety.
