From the Publisher
'Out of the self-absorbed world of global genetic resources and benefit-sharing, emerges an immensely invigorating volume. With a stellar cast of contributors, the editor cajoles the reader forward through the literary device of a gadfly interloper. The result is a compelling must-read for practitioners and neophytes alike. Where else would you find between the covers of a scholarly treatise, references to Hegel, the Pope and Cher?' —Timothy Hodges, Co-Chair, Working Group on ABS, UN Convention on Biological Diversity
'This book should be read by everyone with an interest in the theory and practice of biodiversity, intellectual property and equity.' —Graham Dutfield, author of 'Intellectual Property Rights and the Life Science Industries: Past, Present and Future'
'…adventurous thinkers from a range of disciplines roaming over some of the great conflicts of our time.' —Jay Parini, author of 'The Last Station' and 'Promised Land: Thirteen Books that Changed America'
'A provocative book about a museum-cum-amusement park-cum-people's forum; just like what prevailed in the pre-mobility, pre-TV culture of a people's gathering to think collectively.' —Ossama El-Tayeb, Professor Emeritus, Faculty of Pharmacy, Cairo University
