Overview

This book examines, from both ethical and clinical perspectives, the impact of increasing genetic knowledge on individuals and families. The authors use their experience of working at the "coal face" of clinical genetics to describe the social implications arising from the ability to rest for an increasing number of genetic diseases.

Current controversial issues such as genetic testing and insurance, early diagnosis of late onset disorders, population screening, and abuses of genetics, are all described with great clarity. Several of the chapters are based on lead articles and editorials the authors have been asked to write for The Lancet and British Medical Journal. The book provides a concise introduction to the effects on individuals of the practical issues associated with genetic testing and therefore should be essential reading for all involved in clinical genetics.
