Is the new genetics eugenic? Interpreting the past, envisioning the future
Alan Petersen, pages -

Abstract

Emphasises the complexities and uncertainties which characterise current genetic developments, which should warn against any over-quick collapsing together of genetics and eugenics. Peterson notes the shift towards genetic models in current health provision, and its links to a policy of more personalised health care, and discusses governmental responses to public concerns, and official attempts to formulate policies to deal with the changing environment of biotechnology.
