This volume, published by Cambridge University Press, brings together a unique collection of legal, religious, ethical, and political perspectives to bear on debates concerning biotechnology patents, or ‘patents on life’.

Murphy Institute for Catholic Thought, Law, and Public Policy at the University of St Thomas, Minnesota.
