"Bringing the concerns of different communities together in a single volume makes it possible to appreciate the mosaic of human issues more fully and forces us to anticipate the challenges that may arise—and that will require our attention—as the genetic revolution proceeds... A much needed antidote to the current genetic hoopla."

"A cautious look at the effects of genetic discoveries on society... The issues raised by this book are valid, and all scientists should be aware of them. I often found myself nodding in agreement."

"The authors present several thought-provoking issues in regard to prenatal genetic screening and selective abortion. It's a great contribution to the field."

"This book superbly and successfully fills its purpose—to show the need for dialogue between researchers, health care professionals, communities, and individuals regarding various aspects of genetic technology."
