Xi, 115 pages : 22 cm +. "Two of the most startling developments in contemporary science have radically disrupted the historical connection between sex and reproduction: in vitro fertilization and intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) - an assisted reproductive technique that directly injects a single sperm into an egg. The word play ICSI - designed for classroom readings - presents, in the format of a contentious talk-show dialogue, the science of direct-injection fertilization and the ethical issues connected with it.

Carl Djerassi is one of "the fathers of the Pill"-he was awarded the National Medal of Science for the first synthesis of a steroid oral contraceptive-and has had a prolific additional career as a writer of fiction, plays, and dialogues about science. In these two plays, ICSI and Taboos, he dramatizes the social transformations and contested viewpoints created by advances in reproductive science and technology.

You won't find titillation in this book about sex and reproduction. These two one-act plays are intended by their author, one of the "fathers of the Pill" to prompt discussion of the many ethical questions posed by the divorce between act of sex and human reproduction. The "ICSI" in the title of the first play stands for "intracytoplastic sperm injection", a technology that allows a single sperm to fertilize an egg (rather than the millions that potent males produce). The second play, "Taboos", examines issues associated with the use of reproductive technologies within a family. Authors: Carl Djerassi. Publication date: 2008-07-18.

A DVD included in the book provides video of the ICSI injection process as viewed through a microscope, to be used in performances of the ""ICSI"" one-act dialogue. "Taboos"", a full-length play, turns the screws on characters that reflect a polarized America.
