This book provides a very useful introduction to key debates in and about behavioral genetics

This book provides a very useful introduction to key debates in and about behavioral genetics. A nice range of topics and perspectives is provided, many by leaders in the fields of biology, psychology, sociology, ethics, etc. Several articles (such as those by tobin, duster, and carson) are extremely insightful and informative, and purchase of the book is worthwhile for the articles alone.

This book on culture and biology, written by a distinguished group of contributors, is the best introduction to behavioral genetics that I have read. The varying viewpoints about an emerging new discipline which will affect all of us are presented with such clarity that Behavioral Genetics: The Clash of Culture and Biology should appeal to the general public and serve as a basic text for college courses.

Addresses the cultural, legal, and biological underpinnings of behavioral genetics. Focuses on the quality of science behind behavioral genetic claims and the need to formulate an appropriate, ethically defensible response when the science turns out to be good. For students and the general public. Categories: Biology\Biophysics.

It is notable that the content of this book is more heavily weighted toward consideration of the latter than is the HGP itself; fully two-thirds of the book consists of essays with historical and ethical themes. The leatherback turtle.

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 are raising their own set of difficult ethical, legal, and social issues. In Behavioral Genetics: The Clash of Culture and Biology, Ronald Carson and Mark Rothstein bring together well-known experts from the fields of genetics, ethics, neuroscience, psychiatry, sociology, and law to address the cultural, legal, 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.
