Summary
In A Clone of Your Own? Arlene Judith Klotzko describes the new world of possibilities that can be glimpsed over the horizon. In a lucid and engaging narrative, she explains that the technology to create clones of living beings already exists, inaugurated in 1996 by Dolly the sheep, the first mammal cloned from a single adult cell. Dolly was the culmination of a long scientific quest to understand the puzzle of our development from one cell into a complex organism- the outcome of a "fantastic experiment" envisioned six decades before her birth
