Editorial Reviews

Review

"Professor Alan H. Bittles offers the reader a comprehensive, balanced overview of consanguinity - including historical, legal, medical, socioeconomic, religious and geographical perspectives. Packed with fascinating facts on the history of consanguinity, and statistics comparing practices and resources between countries, Consanguinity in Context makes for 'must read' material on a complex, often controversial, issue."
OrphaNews Europe

"I found Alan Bittles' book to be extremely fascinating. Bittles provides an eye-opening and exhaustive review of the political, religious, economic, social, and biological factors impinging on consanguineous unions. His goal for this work is well summarized at the end of chapter one: '... to provide an appropriately extensive framework of information within which the subject [of consanguineous unions] can be rationally and dispassionately evaluated'. Consanguinity in Context admirably fulfills this objective."
Jamie Schwendinger-Schreck, The Yale Journal of Biology and Medicine

"This book is a treasure trove of information and anecdotes on consanguineous unions."
Elof Axel Carlson, The Quarterly Review of Biology

"Consanguinity in Context is a rich, well-structured, well-written, convincing, and in many details astonishing book recommendable for students as well as for scholarly work."
Anthropos
