"The volume deserves our serious attention. The authors have provided us an invaluable primer about the HGP and its implications for the future of American health care." -Jurimetrics "This book does make a real contribution... in explaining why the genetics revolution holds so much promise and why it is so difficult to bring that promise to fruition." -The Journal of Legal Medicine "... marked by a forward-looking, analytically and empirically grounded thematic coherence. The editors' carefully crafted template and contributions successfully focus and organize the material." -Annals of Internal Medicine "Excellent" -Canadian Medical Association Journal "The editors have done a very good job integrating the contents into a very useful and readable information source." -Choice "... this highly focused book is a well-written, thoughtful, and insightful consideration of the HGP and is valuable reading for anyone concerned with the future of our country's medical infrastructure." -Science Books & Films (**Highly recommended) "A distinguished group of scientists, lawyers, and scholars have written a coherent, readable account of the legal, medical, ethical, and policy issues many (if not all) of us will be wrestling with on both a personal and a public level, as a result of current genetic research." -Library Journal "Each of the contributors is a distinguished authority on the topic. Ethicists, especially, will find well-developed presentation of issues, with exposition of the differing ethical assumptions in tension in the society debate." -Doody's Health Sciences Book Review Home Page How will the science of gene mapping and gene manipulation affect health care? Leading scholars explore the clinical, ethical, legal, and policy implications of the Human Genome Project for the forms of health care, who delivers it, who receives it, and who pays for it.
