The title of Silver's book is instructive: Remaking Eden: Cloning and Beyond in a Brave New World.

Silver’s Remaking Eden and the Silver Screen In Remaking Eden, Lee M. Silver asks three central questions: Who controls life? What counts as life? And what will human life look like in the future? The question Silver does not ask is whether or not human life as we now know and define it will change. Lee M. Silver, the author of " Remaking Eden: Cloning and Beyond in a Brave New World," takes a different view. No question is too speculative, remote or absurd for Silver, a Princeton University.
