Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0802849202, Paperback)

This timely volume clearly lays out the central ethical questions raised by today's rapid advances in biotechnology. James Peterson sorts through the maze of clinical decisions occasioned by human genetic intervention, organizing the range of moral considerations that now face us and exploring their practical impact on individuals, families, and communities. / The ethical question are covered in the order of how soon the particular technologies that raise them are becoming available. This unique format allows readers to go directly to issues of particular interest. Peterson assumes no prior knowledge of genetics or ethics, making his work one of the most accessible discussions of bioethics available today.
