Editorial Reviews

"This is a rich and important book, laced with lively vignettes and provocative judgments, Comfort  recounts with an unblinking eye the evolution of medical genetics from its origins in eugenics to the era of the genome. An absorbing and informative work."—Daniel J. Kevles, Stanley Woodward Professor of History, Yale University, and author of In the Name of Eugenics
