Summary
Developments in the field of genetics (including, but not limited to, human genetics) have brought into being (or at least into the realm of plausibility) a "genetic engineering" which is widely perceived to pose a diverse assortment of intricately tangled and in many respects novel ethical problems. The present volume, addressed to general readers (the face of the principal author will be familiar to viewers of PBS), provides a lucid account of scientific discoveries/facts which lie at the base of this development, and a balanced account of the ethical points at issue. The book desrves to be widely read, for it has been written from a clear sense that the ethical conundrums of today are in this sphere very soon going to acquire (for good or ill) "resolution" as public policy. Thirteen chapters, epilogue, glossary, suggested reading list; nicely produced, with many good figures; reasonably priced. (NW) Annotation copyright Book News, Inc. Portland, Or
