Science, like law, is a central feature of contemporary Western societies. Yet the connections between the two often receive ad hoc treatment. This book gives close attention to these connections, and it places them in the context of other social dynamics such as gender and economy. Topics explored in this wide-ranging collection include DNA testing in the criminal justice process, regulation of reproductive technology research, the globalization of intellectual property and related laws to biotechnology.
