About this book

Focussing on China's stem cell research, this book investigates how, over the last decade, Chinese scientists, ethicists and policy-makers have developed a cosmopolitan sensibility in comprehending and responding to ethical and regulatory concerns.

Reviews

“The book provides a trans-disciplinary readership with an original, detailed, nuanced and solid empirical account of a focus area in contemporary china. … it is a laudable and invaluable pioneering work. … This book makes a serious attempt to remind the research community of the need for an appropriate methodology.” (Ole Döring, East Asian Science, Technology, and Medicine, Issue 40, 2014)


'This is a highly original, ground breaking study as it enriches cosmopolitan theory with empirical data from a developing country.' - Ulrich Beck, Professor of Sociology, University of Munich, Germany

'Joy Zhang delivers a lucid and pioneering account of non-western science-in-the-making. This important book will be of value to a wide range of scholars by elucidating not only the cosmopolitanization of science in China, but how this process can be analysed sociologically, and why such research matters.' - Sarah Franklin, Professor of Sociology, University of Cambridge, UK

'Zhang deftly illuminates the worlds of stem cell research and ethical governance in China. Rather than situate scientific knowledge in terms of flows from East to West, or vice versa,this book illustrates how national agendas of science reframe knowledge and material practices as cosmopolitan.' - Nancy N. Chen, Professor of Anthropology, University of California Santa Cruz, USA
