Pressestimmen

"An analytical and theoretical tour de force. The Global Genome is that rare thing: a book that combines a confident knowledge of biotechnology with a sharp eye for theory, with pyrotechnic results. Thacker maps a biopolitical economy of recombinant capital, biomaterial labor, technologies, biowar, and colonialism, a construct that wreaks havoc on our understanding of what a body is, what it can do, and what it can be made to do in the age of biotechnology. An eye-opener for the non-expert, and an essential contribution for researchers and students."
