About this book


Combining the basic physiological facts of human reproduction with a concise account of the techniques used for in vitro fertilization (IVF), this short text makes an important addition to material currently available for sixth form and introductory courses in higher education. Following the central theme of the Dimensions of Science Series, in which modern discoveries are placed in a social context, this book uses the topic of IVF to illustrate not only the scientific and clinical aspects of human infertility, but the way science develops and generates ethical issues of concern to all.
