This series explores developing technologies that are frequently in the news and occasionally hotly-contested. Titles examine the history, current uses, future, and negative impacts of each technology. The discussions of benefits and risks are even-handed and give readers a nuanced take on the outlook for the technology. Included in each book is a timeline of development, vocabulary textboxes, and websites for additional research. The combination of scientific background and ethical dilemmas provides a wide understanding of each topic. Like any series on developing technology, these books could be out of date soon, but they present clear and useful information for research assignments.
