Editorial Reviews

Review

"The chapters, written by philosophers, lawyers, historians and clinicians, examine the vast array of problems raised by this much discussed scientific behavior. The essays are excellent, the authors stellar." --Nature

"The contributors examine genetic discrimination in light of race and class issues, the history of misuse of genetic information, and how policies may affect our concepts of disease." --Hastings Center Report

"The editors and contributors are experts; their writing is clear, and undergraduates should be able to understand it without difficulty." --Choice

"Much of it is written in a low key, critical, and scholarly fashion, avoiding the more sensationalist approach that mars so many books of this kind. For this reason I strongly recommend it."--D.J. Weatherall, writing in British Medical Journal

"Collection of insightful essays....The editors' introductory and concluding chapters are quite effective in bringing together both the philosophical and the more practical levels of analysis....Gene Mapping successfully raises numerous provocative issues and questions."--Bio/Technology

"The authors have brought together an impressive team of contributors to asses the current state of modern human genetics. This book makes the subject accessible to the general reader." --European Medical Journal

"Contributions are of high quality. There is relaitively little overlap, and several chapters are gems. I recommend this volume to readers. The editors secured contributions from people who have devoted much energy to studying genetics in a larger context. On the whole these manuscripts are of the quality one would demand." -- American Journal of Human Genetics

"Should be read by all involved in, or interested in, human genome research. Of the books that have arisen from within the genome research community to address these many issues, this is the most challenging and authoritative that I have read." --Trends in Genetics

"Excellent collection of essays....This volume takes the reader through all the main ethical aspects of the project to map the human genome....Will be of considerable value to all who are working in this area." --Ruth F. Chadwick, University of Central Lancashire, Journal of Medical Ethics

"The authors have brought together an impressive team of contributors to assess the current state of modern human genetics. This book makes the subject accessible to the general reader." --European Medical Journal
