Editorial Reviews


"An easily read book… that can be used as an introduction to the looming problems in the access to genetic technology." -- JAMA (Journal of the American Medical Association)

"Well written, accessible, and worth reading as an introduction to some of these futuristic issues and fears -- and some provocative potential solutions." -- Health Affairs

"Engaging and accessible… highly recommended to the interested reader and perhaps as a course book." -- Journal of Medical Ethics

"[A] provocative analysis…this book asks an important and difficult question that has not been adequately addressed elsewhere…Clearly written, insightful, and timely, this book is worthwhile reading for anyone interested in health policy and a valuable addition to the growing literature on the ethical, legal, and social implications of the human genome project." -- Medical Humanities Review

"A must (and quick) read for those interested in the just distribution of genetic resources. It is well organized and provides an excellent overview of the philosophical and practical issues to be considered." -- Bioethics
