Description: Scientists conducting human genome research are identifying genetic disorders and traits at an accelerating rate. Genetic factors in human behavior appear particularly complex and slow to emerge, yet have begun raising their own set of difficult ethical, legal, and social issues. In this volume, Ronald Carson and Mark Rothstein bring together well-known experts from the fields of genetics, ethics, neurosciences, psychiatry, sociology, and law to address the cultural and biological underpinnings of behavioral genetics. The authors discuss a broad range of topics, including the ethical questions arising from gene therapy and screening, molecular research in psychiatry, and the legal ramifications and social consequences of behavioral genetic information.

Throughout, they focus on two basic concerns: the quality of the science behind behavioral genetic claims and the need to formulate an appropriate, ethically defensible response when the science turns out to be good.
