Reviews

“Hansen’s book concerns the concept of Participatory Technology Assessment (PTA) in the regulation, governance and formulation of national policies towards Genetically Modified Organisms in the agricultural sector. … Hansen’s treatment of the relatively narrow subject is precise and informative, and this book would certainly be of interest to any scholar of GMO policy, PTA or technology governance, and may have a place as a teaching tool for those interested in technological risk and comparative case study analysis of technological controversies.” (Matthew Cotton, Science Studies, Issue 1, 2012)
