This bibliography examines the monster and the scientist whose story has become one of the most enduring myths of the Western world since Mary Shelley published her book, Frankenstein, in 1818. It also illustrates how Frankenstein has become a symbol for public fears about groundbreaking new scientific techniques which often challenge our under-standing of what is "natural" such as cloning, organ transplants, and genetically modified foods.

Books on this list can be borrowed from your library. St. Louis Public Library cardholders can use the Library's online catalog to find specific locations where these books can be found.

Medical and Ethical Issues in Cloning, Reproductive Technology, and Organ Transplantation: A Selected, Annotated Bibliography

Andrews, Lori B. The Clone Age: Adventures in the New World of Reproductive Technology. New York: Henry Holt and Company, 1999.

An attorney and expert on the legal and ethical implications of reproductive technology examines some of the more pressing issues in the field. For example, is a human embryo a person, property, or something else entirely? Should parents be able to buy genes for superior intelligence or athletic ability for their children? The author closely examines these issues and other pressing concerns in the field.

Boylan, Michael, and Kevin E. Brown. Genetic Engineering: Science and Ethics on the New Frontier. Upper Saddle River, NJ: Prentice Hall, 2001.

The Ethics of Organ Transplants. Ed. by Arthur L. Caplan and Daniel H. Coelho. Amherst, NY: Promethean Books, 1999.

A look at ethical issues in the field of human organ transplantation. Examined are such questions as, "How are we to meet the growing need for organs for transplantation?" "Should people be permitted to sell their organs?" "Should animals be sacrificed to provide transplant organs to save the lives of humans?" "Should hospitals and the government be able to harvest usable organs from the dead without the permission of the deceased or his or her next of kin?" Also considered is the use of genetic engineering and reproductive technology to grow organs using fetal tissue. A bibliography is included.

The Future of Human Reproduction: Ethics, Choice, and Regulation. Ed. by John Harris and Soren Holm. Oxford: Clarendon Press, 1999.

Gosden, Roger. Designing Babies: The Brave New World of Reproductive Technology. New York: W. H. Freeman and Company, 1999.

This is an overview of the ongoing revolution in reproductive technology. The increasing ability of doctors and scientists to manipulate fertility and shape genetic destinies is both raising hopes and creating fears. Glossary, bibliography, and index follow.

Green, Ronald M. The Human Embryo Research Debates. New York: Oxford University Press, 2001.

Human embryo research has met powerful opposition, even though it appears likely to hold out the promise of cures for many serious diseases, including diabetes and Alzheimer's disease. The author, a member of NIH's Human Embryo Research Panel, discusses many of the questions considered by the panel, such as "What role should religion play in shaping national biomedical policy in controversial areas such as human embryo research?" It has a bibliography and index, and two appendices: Stages of Embryonic Development; and, National Institutes of Health Human Embryo Research Panel: Categories of Research.

Kolata, Gina. Clone: The Road to Dolly and the Path Ahead. New York: William Morrow and Company, 1998.

The story of the cloning of Dolly, by the reporter who broke the story in the U.S. in the New York Times. Kolata had access to Dr. Ian Wilmut, leader of the Dolly research team, and to members of his team. She explains how and why Dolly's birth was possible, and also examines the largely unreported events that led up to the cloning of Dolly. A "Notes" section and index are available.

Manto, Gina. Quest for Perfection: The Drive to Breed Better Human Beings. New York: Scribners, 1996.

A look at the history of society's attempts to control human destiny by regulating birth outcomes. It includes a look at the eugenics movement, and at the extremes to which Nazi Germany took eugenics. The author's story begins with experiments in artificial insemination in the 1800s, continues to in vitro fertilization experiments in the 1970s, and concludes with a look at possible futures given the current state of affairs in the field.

Munson, Ronald. Raising the Dead: Organ Transplants, Ethics, and Society. New York: Oxford University Press, 2002.

Every year some 25,000 Americans are spared death because of organ transplants. Another 5,000 die while waiting for transplants. Each chapter in this book explores a question such as who gets an organ for transplantation and who doesn't by first examining a specific case, such as the Mickey Mantle liver transplant, and then by taking a careful look at the ethical issues touched on by that case. Also considered are xenotransplantation (transplanting animal organs in human bodies), and stem cell technology, which will allow doctors to grow new organs from a patient's own cells. The book has a bibliography and index.

Pence, Gregory E. Who's Afraid of Human Cloning? Lanham , MD: Rowman & Littlefield Publishers, 1998.

An argument for cloning and genetic engineering, the author tries to present both sides of the issues, but he still manages to make a compelling case for allowing cloning and genetic engineering research to proceed largely unfettered by government regulations and restrictions. An index is included.

Silver, Lee M. Remaking Eden: Cloning and Beyond in a Brave New World. New York: Avon Books, 1997.

A Princeton University professor looks at cloning and other "reprogenetic" technologies such as cryogenics and in-vitro fertilization. He examines the current state of affairs in these fields, then speculates on where science might be headed in the future when it comes to these technologies (for example, "designer" children and expectant fathers). It includes a very lengthy (and interesting) "Notes" section and an index.

Stock, Gregory. Redesigning Humans: Our Inevitable Genetic Future. Boston: Houghton Mifflin Company, 2002.

The author feels that it is a serious mistake to cut off research in new technologies like cloning, stem cell research, and cell therapy, as some special interest groups have attempted, in an effort to safeguard society against vague possible future misuses of these new technologies. He suggests that government follow a mostly hands-off policy until these infant technologies have been allowed to grow and mature. He further believes that genetic engineering and advances in reproductive technology will offer such tremendous advantages to parents over the traditional system of "genetic roulette" that the federal government and religious groups will be unable to stop the coming phenomenon of "designer babies" in any event. Includes a bibliography, index, and several appendices. One appendix, "Challenges to Come," includes eight thought-provoking questions that could be used by discussion groups or school classes to examine issues in reproductive technology.

Wilmut, Ian, Keith Campbell, and Colin Tudge. The Second Creation: Dolly and the Age of Biological Control. New York: Farrar, Straus, and Giroux, 2000.

The three Scottish researchers who managed to clone Dolly in 1996 from a cell of an adult sheep explain their hypotheses and experiments, their conclusions, and consider the implications of their pioneering research. For example, they see possibilities in genetically modified organs that could safely be transplanted into humans, and in genetically engineered sheep that could be used in genetic defect research and in cell-based therapies for human ailments. They also consider the ethical issues raised by their research, and examine the need to reconcile these ethical issues with the enormous possibilities for alleviation of human suffering raised by their research. An extensive glossary and index are included.

Medical and Ethical Issues in Animal Research, Euthanasia, Genetic Engineering, Physician-Assisted Suicide, the Right-to-Die Movement, Terminal Illness, and Vaccine Research on Human Subjects: A Selected, Annotated Bibliography

Alecson, Deborah G. Lost Lullaby. Berkeley, CA: University of California Press, 1995.

This is the story of Andrea, a baby born with irreversible brain damage, told in her mother’s voice. Andrea’s parents viewed her as already dying and did not want medical technology to keep her alive. This book describes their fight to obtain power over their child’s destiny in the face of opposition from hospital personnel complying with the law and with their hospital’s policies.

Dyck, Arthur J. Life’s Worth: The Case against Assisted Suicide. Grand Rapids, MI: William B. Eerdmans Publishing Company, 2002.

The author, a Harvard ethicist, argues for the inherent worth of human life. He notes that physician- assisted suicide (PAS) and euthanasia deny terminally ill patients any possibility of recovery. He also discusses comfort-only care and analyzes how that differs morally from PAS and euthanasia.

Genetic Engineering: A Documentary History. Edited by Thomas A. Shannon. Westport, CT: Greenwood Press, 1999.

This title covers a wide range of topics in the debate on genetic engineering. These include animal applications, agriculture, the human genome, issues in research, diagnostic applications of genetic information, and cloning.

Grady, Christine. The Search for an AIDS Vaccine: Ethical Issues in the Development and Testing of a Preventive HIV Vaccine. Indianapolis, IN: Indiana University Press, 1995.

The creation of a vaccine seems the best hope for controlling Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (AIDS) but the ethics of human-subject research toward such a vaccine are very controversial. Ms. Grady, an R.N. and holder of a Ph.D., examines the guidelines, regulations, and attitudes about human-subjects research. She also proposes a model for ethical conduct of vaccine research in general and HIV vaccine research in particular. The book contains a glossary, seven pages of notes, 22 pages of references, and an index.

The Human Genome Project and the Future of Health Care. Edited by Thomas H. Murray, Mark A. Rothstein, and Robert F. Murray, Jr. Indianapolis, IN: Indiana University Press, 1996.

The Human Genome Project has far reaching implications for American health care. Gene mapping offers the possibility of new treatments for illness. Will insurance cover the costs of potentially expensive, experimental treatments? Will such treatments be available to the poor, or to Medicare or Medicaid recipients? Will genetic predictions of possible future illnesses lead to loss of employment or denial of insurance coverage? Those are just a few of the questions discussed in this book’s twelve essays.

"It Just Ain’t Fair": The Ethics of Health Care for African Americans. Edited by Annette Dula and Sara Goering. Westport, CT: Praeger Publishers, 1994.

The editors look at the gross inequities in health care available to African-Americans in particular and to poor people in general. Topics for the essays include "Ethical Responsibilities and the Medical Profession," and "A Practical Ethics for Reform: Community Empowerment." Each essay is followed by a commentary by a well-known medical ethicist. Also included are a lengthy bibliography and an index.

Kevorkian, Dr. Jack. Prescription: Medicide: the Goodness of a Planned Death. Buffalo, NY: Prometheus Books, 1991.

Medicide is the term Dr. Kevorkian uses to describe physician-assisted suicide. He is the inventor of the "suicide machine." In this book he takes on those who "…actively resist a rational and comprehensive program of dignified, humane, and beneficial planned death."

Lurquin, Paul F. High Tech Harvest: Understanding Genetically Modified Food Plants. Boulder, CO: Westview Press, 2002.

Should consumers be concerned about genetically engineered plant products on grocery store shelves? Are biotechnology companies telling the truth when they say genetically engineered corn and canola are safe? The author’s goal is to provide an understanding of the basic science of genetic engineering so that people can make informed decisions about genetically modified foods. A glossary, chapter references, and an index are included.

Peck, M. Scott. Denial of the Soul: Spiritual and Medical Perspectives on Euthanasia and Mortality. New York: Harmony Books, 1997.

The author discusses the issues of death, suicide and euthanasia from his experience as a physician, psychiatrist, and theologian. Among the questions he asks are: "How does taking a life differ from allowing death?" "Whose consent is required?" "How great must the physical or emotional pain be for euthanasia to be considered?"

Pence, Gregory E. Re-Creating Medicine: Ethical Issues at the Frontiers of Medicine. New York: Rowman & Littlefield Publishers, Inc., 2000.
