"This timely, well-written book brings together the collective experience of experts from the fields of medicine, psychiatry, religious studies, bioethics, and molecular genetics in an effort to develop coherent guidelines for the counseling of potential sufferers from genetic diseases." -- Journal of Religion and Health

This book presents 29 case studies that identify the most important ethical issues that are likely to emerge from new technologies of genetic testing and develops a series of guidelines based on those case studies. By providing the clinical origins and rationale behind each of its recommendations, the book will help readers think through the ethical issues and will assist them in the development of additional guidelines.
