Summary "Is the practice of eugenics morally defensible? Who should have access to genetic information about particular individuals? What dangers for cultural and racial diversity do developments in genetics pose? How should scientific research be regulated and by whom? These are some of the questions addressed in this thought-provoking book. It is essential reading for all those interested in the future of humankind."--Jacket.
