Résumé :

Senator Ashley Butler is a quintessential southern demagogue, whose support of traditional American values includes a knee-jerk reaction against virtually all biotechnologies remotely associated with human reproduction. As the chairman of a subcommittee on health policy, he introduces legislation to ban a new cloning procedure that would take stem cell research to the next level. Dr. Daniel Lowell, the inventor of the technique, sees the proposed ban as a blow to his biotech startup, and to people poised to benefit from its promised therapies. The two formidable egos clash during the Senate hearing, but the men have a common desire. With a plot torn from today's headlines, this book is a cautionary tale for a time when politics clashes with biotechnology, when we are pulled into a promising yet frightening new world.
