"Human beings have always been afraid of their own creative power, and the idea of man-made life was scary long before science was in any position to think of procedures that might make it reality." Since the arrival of "Dolly," the first animal widely believed to have been cloned from an adult mammal, that reality looms closer than ever  a prospect the contributors to this stimulating volume view with varying degrees of alarm, disgust, grief, calm, ambivalence, and not a little humor.</li><li>Ranging from psychoanalyst Adam Phillips's case study of a child whose confusion of "cloning" and "clothing" expresses our mixed desire and terror of sameness, to Cass Sunstein's projections of utterly plausible Supreme Court decisions both for and against human cloning; from William Miller's analysis of the queasiness and nervous laughter the subject elicits in many of us ("Sheep jokes are sex jokes," he notes), to Richard Epstein's libertarian argument against a research ban; from Andrea Dworkin's denunciation of another masculine effort to control reproduction to Martha Nussbaum's witty and elegiac fantasy of the cloning of a lost lover  this superb collection limns our beliefs and concerns about what it means to be human.</li><li>Martha C. Nussbaum is Ernst Freund Professor of Law and Ethics, with appointments in the Law School, Philosophy Department, and the Divinity School, and Cass R. Sunstein is Karl N. Llewellyn Distinguished Service Professor of Jurisprudence in the Law School and Department of Political Science, both at the University of Chicago.</li></ol><FONT COLOR = "0000FF"><HR><B>BOOK COMMENT: </B><BR><BR>W.
