"In this book, Chidi Oguamanam argues that the crisis of legitimacy that indigenous knowledge poses for the intellectual property system calls for a rethinking of the intellectual property jurisprudence in a cross-cultural direction." "Oguamanan's study draws from interdisciplinary research in the social and medical sciences. It uses as its framework of analysis the legal doctrinal methodology, focusing on international legal and policy developments regarding the protection of indigenous knowledge, with emphasis on plant biodiversity as the mainstay of indigenous or traditional medicinal knowledge."--Jacket.
