This slim volume is an excellent primer on the science, ethics, and public policy of cloning human beings. The chapters are edited lectures delivered at a conference that took place at the University of San Francisco, Calif, in April 1998, after "Dolly" but before more recent developments in cloning and stem cell research. Thus, today's debates about stem cell research are not covered. Still, the initial essay on the science, by George Seidel, provides a succinct and accurate description of the various procedures called cloning.
