I HAVEN'T YET REVISED THIS WEBSITE TO REFLECT MY CURRENT ACTIVITIES AND INTERESTS, but human reproductive cloning remains one, so here's some information about my book on the subject.

Clone Being: Exploring the Psychological and Social Dimensions is the only book published to date that focuses specifically on the psychological and social implications of cloning.

Here are some excerpts from a few of the published reviews:

Cloning pioneer, Ian Wilmut, wrote in The Times of London Higher Education Supplement, that the book provides "the first framework for detailed analysis of the ethical, psychological, and social consequences of human reproductive cloning."

In The Lancet, Dan Bustillos, found the book to be a "welcome refrain to the cloning debate cacophony, and an argument that policymakers ignore at the peril of future generations."

Attesting to the relevance of the book to human issues beyond cloning, L. Brancaccio Taras, in Choice, wrote: "Although human clones do not exist as yet, this well-written, thought-provoking book also covers current issues, such as ethics and sexuality, which are applicable to the psychological development of all humans."

The book's analogical method elucidates a range of likely psychological and social consequences of human reproductive cloning by drawing parallels to the issues faced by step, adopted, and namesaked individuals, the impact of a parent's wish for a self-resembling child, and the complexities faced by offspring of famous people.

Deriving from the book is my chapter opposing human reproductive cloning, included in the textbook, Contemporary Debates in Bioethics (2013), edited by Caplan and Arp.
