Overview

From war and death to school and gender equality, the Sociedad series discusses many serious issues in a way that can be easily understood by children. Although many of the situations and examples are specific to Mexico, these books can be applied to a general readership, particularly one of Hispanic origin.

 

Reflecting on modern sciences, particularly biotechnology—from its limitations to its advances—this perceptive study answers many questions concerning cloning and genetically modified organisms, such as Why do scientists work in these arenas? What are the benefits of this technology? and Can it be dangerous? In addition to explaining the science behind these studies, this exploration also looks at the ethics involved, asking Is it ethical to modify the genes of living humans? and What do governments and religions have to say about all of this technology?

 

Desde la guerra y la muerte hasta la escuela y la equidad de género, la serie Sociedad aborda muchos temas serios en una manera fácil de comprender para los niños. Aunque muchas situaciones y ejemplos están adaptados a México, los libros de esta serie pueden ser aplicados por lectores generales, especialmente los de origen hispano.

 

Reflexionando sobre las ciencias modernas, particularmente la biotecnología—desde sus limitaciones hasta sus avances—este estudio perceptivo contesta muchas preguntas acerca de la clonación y los organismos genéticamente modificados, como ¿Por qué hay científicos que trabajan en estas áreas? ¿Qué son los beneficios de esta tecnología? y ¿Resulta peligroso? Además de explicar la ciencia detrás de estos estudios, esta exploración detallada también examina la ética, preguntando ¿Es ético modificar los genes de seres vivos? y ¿Qué dicen los gobiernos y las religiones con respecto a esta tecnología?
