Society & Social Sciences


by Goldstein, David B.

This book deals with the relationship between society and the human genome, one which has just undergone a dramatic change.

It has recently become possible to manipulate the genetic makeup of living breathing people, with tremendous ethical and scientific ramifications. While there have been attempts to explore these new and pressing issues in a book aimed at a general audience, none have gotten the "personal genomics book" for trade audiences quite right yet. David Goldstein investigates
this new field within genetics, and that he is uniquely posed to do it.

David Goldstein is the director of the Institute for Genomic Medicine at Columbia University. From 2010 to 2014, he served as Director of the Center for Human Genome Variation at Duke University. He is the author of Jacob's Legacy: A Genetic View of Jewish History (2009).
