Angels of Power and Other Reproductive Creations

Angels of Power and Other
Reproductive Creations
Susan Hawthorne and
Renate Klein

From Spinifex: In the tradition of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein, these writers rework images of the body. Imagination, vision and a sense of the absurd come together and demonstrate that women can resist the power of god-like scientists who long to create monsters and angels.

Angels of Power should head the reading list of any course in ethics and reproductive technology.
