Are eugenics practices morally defensible? Who should have access to genetic information about particular individuals? What dangers for cultural and racial diversity do developments in genetics pose? And how should scientific research be regulated and by whom? These are some of the questions addressed in this book, which comprises the 1998 Oxford Amnesty Lectures. The lecturers are all respected in their specific field, including Hilary Putnam, Ian Wilmut (co-creator of 'Dolly' the sheep), and Jonathan Glover. Each lecture is proceeded by a discussion article written by prominent lawyers, scientists, and philosophers, and a foreword has been written by Richard Dawkins. Fascinating and thought-provoking, this book is essential reading for all those interested in the future of genetics and humankind.
