An excellent account of Dolly has been written by the New York Times
science journalist Gina Kolata (1997), which includes a helpful introduc-
tion to the history of the science of cloning. The most comprehensive ac-
countofthemakingofDolly,onwhichthisbookreliessubstantially,isthat
written by the Roslin scientists Ian Wilmut and Keith Campbell together
with the British science journalist ColinTudge (2000).The bioethicist Ar-
leneKlotzko’seditedsourcebookoncloningisinvaluable(2001).Klotzko’s
more recent monograph on cloning (2004), like that of the philosopher
John Harris (2004), is primarily concerned with the ethical implications
of cloning. Andrea Bonnicksen’s discussion of the public policy dimen-
sions of cloning and stem cells (2002), although primarily based on the
United States, is extremely helpful. For a review of cloning literature, see
Franklin 1999b.

For social and historical analyses of the importance of control over
programmed cell death in the production of cellular value, see Landecker
2000, 2003; Lock 2001; Hogle 2003; and Squier 2000. For a polemical ac-
countofthescienceandpoliticsofstemcellsintheUnitedStates,seeWest
2003, and for an indication of the increasing importance of cell immor-
tality within popular culture, see Amazon.com, where in March 2004 a
search of that phrase produced 14,601 hits—many from the new age and
lifestyle literatures.

2003b; Franklin 2001b, 2003b, 2005. For theirconnections to social move-

1988 and Mackenzie 1988 for accounts of how U.S. American and British
imperial accounts of nature both emerged from, and contributed to, wider
