The fact that this series, in common with many other individual contributions to the area of medical law and ethics, has produced a number of books concentrating on human reproduction shows the extent to which reproductive technologies have stimulated controversy and legal and ethical debate.;This book aims to bring together disparate views on reproduction, and its associated technologies, in two main ways, and for this reason, it has been divided into two parts. First, it provides a review of the legislative and social response to technology in a number of different jurisdictions and seeks to analyze both why and in what way certain areas have been regulated. Second, it explores issues which are less well covered by legislation, by looking at egg donation, and by reminding us that reproductive issues may have different consequences and problems in the developing world.;In the preparation of this collection the law outstripped editorial speed in a number of jurisdictions.
