Full text not available from this repository.


This volume examines, from both ethical and clinical perspectives, the impact of increasing genetic knowledge on individuals and families. The authors use their experience of working within clinical genetics to describe the social implications arising from the ability to test for an increasing number of genetic diseases. Current controversial issues are described. Several chapters are based on lead articles and editorials the authors have been asked to write for "The Lancet" and the "British Medical Journal". The book provides an introduction to the effects on individuals of the practical issues associated with genetic testing and should, therefore, be of interest to all those involved in clinical genetics.
