Editorial Reviews

Review

"Contributions from an assembly of preeminent experts on DNA testing make this book an extraordinary resource, one that is likely to set the agenda for science policy in this area for years to come. Gracefully written and overflowing with important and challenging insights, this book is essential reading. But its relevance extends far beyond the criminal law, since the limits and uses of DNA testing should concern us all."--David L. Faigman, Professor of Law, University of California, Hastings, and author of *Laboratory of Justice: The Supreme Court's 200-Year Struggle to Integrate Science and the Law*



"Leaders in the field take the reader through a wide spectrum of critical issues involving DNA applications in the criminal justice system. This book is not only the most valuable reference for forensic practitioners, but is essential for the law-enforcement and academic communities as well."

(Dr. Henry C. Lee, Connecticut Forensic Science Laboratory)

"This is a very important collection of essays. There has been no serious, comprehensive attempt to consider the social implications of genetic technology on the criminal justice system since Paul Billings' DNA on Trial from 1992. The topic is even more important today, as DNA evidence is more widely collected and used. The book should appeal to a broad audience of lawyers, judges, forensics experts, social scientists, public officials, and the public."

(Mark A. Rothstein, University of Louisville School of Medicine, editor of Genetic Secrets: Protecting Privacy and Confidentiality in the Genetic Era)

This book provides a rich compendium of fully up-to-date law and policy analysis, coupled with an accessible scientific narrative. It is a striking achievement, and I expect to refer to it often and with confidence that current trends, views, and perspectives, as well as the evolving state of our knowledge of legal and scientific issues relevant to criminal justice, has been amply presented." Judge Andre M. Davis, United States District Court for the District of Maryland
