Peripheral Visions – Bob Simpson

This book brings together in a single volume an original and important corpus of work exploring biotechnologies, biomedicine, and bioethics in Sri Lanka. Based on two decades of anthropological research the work highlights novel connections and consequences across different domains and orders of culture and society. ‘Peripheral visions’ provides a documentary record of developments that have been of importance in Sri Lanka; a focal point for theoretical and methodological reflection on these issues and a pointer towards future avenues of research on issues that will only become of greater relevance and consequence in the years to come.
