Cultural representations of the '˜human genome' have been channelled through the imagery of and debates about human cloning since the launch of the Human Genome Project and the revelation of the birth of Dolly the Sheep. This channelling has generated a rich and complex discursive terrain in which key preoccupations and tropes travel across and between various media forms and genres. This book provides a multi-dimensional analysis of this crucial phase in the development and exploration of human cloning and related developments in genomics, giving due attention to the mediation this has involved.
