Thirty-five papers, presented by Atkinson (sociology, Cardiff U., UK), Glasner ESRC Centre for Economic and Social Aspects of Genomics, Cardiff U., UK), and Lock (emerita, McGill U., Canada), provide an interdisciplinary exploration of contemporary international social science research on the social, political, ethical, and economic consequences and implications of genetics, genomics, and new biosciences. They organize the chapters in seven thematic sections focused on biomedical applications of new genetic technologies, commercialization, representations of genomics, regulation, bioethics and genetics, diversity and justice, and new forms of knowledge production. Each section includes an introductory overview of the topic together with a number of more focused articles. Annotation ©2009 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
