This book, written by a leading geneticist, examines the ethical and social issues raised by the genetic testing of children. The opinions of geneticists, ethicists and affected families are all included to give a balanced view of this controversial field. Issues covered include confidentiality, potential abuses of genetic information (eg the use of test results by insurance companies) and the value of predictive genetic testing.
The aim of the book is to improve awareness of the complexity of the issues raised and provide suggestions as to how the discussions must develop - it therefore raises new questions as well as answering those that already exist.

The genetic testing of children: some legal and ethical concerns
Talking to children - and talking with them
Reflections in genetic testing in childhood
On the receiving end of genetic medicine
Testing children for balanced chromosomal translocations
