Most scientists have read one or more Utopian novels. The best known - Brave New World, The Shape of Things to Come, and even Planet of the Apes - have biological themes. They tell of a day when the human race will undergo genetic disaster because of the machinations of scientists. In Bicycling to Utopia, award-winning scientist Steve Jones looks at the future of human evolution from the perspective of current developments in human genetics. Together with other essays by experts in their fields, this volume of selected Evening Discourses from the Royal Institution offers an authoritative and accessible summary of current thinking in many areas of science and technology.
