The Impact of Behavioral Genetics on Criminal Law is essential reading for anyone interested in the ongoing genomics and neuroscience revolution and its implications for criminal law. Building in part on a recent multi-disciplinary conference, this collection of essays offers a comprehensive discussion of the ramifications of behavioral sciences in criminal cases and brings together the leading behavioral geneticists, neuroscientists, philosophers, policymakers, and legal scholars to address the multi-faceted concerns at issue. Together, the essays in this volume discuss the scientific progress and limitations in behavioral science research relating to criminal conduct, and the ethical concerns and practical implications of introducing behavioral science evidence into criminal cases. Included is a detailed discussion of criminal cases in which biological and neurological predisposition testimony has been introduced, the implications for criminal responsibility and punishment, the consequences for DNA databank research, new directions in predictions of future dangerousness, and the concerns for ethnic and racial minorities arising from this research.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"Recent developments in behavioral genetics have tremendous potential for understanding crime; yet they also create great dangers of abuse in criminal trials as well as policies. These profound and important issues are discussed in depth from various disciplinary perspectives by the prominent and learned contributors to this well-organized and accessible volume. It should be read by anyone interested in where our legal system is headed."
--Walter Sinnott-Armstrong,
Dartmouth College, Co-director, MacArthur Law and Neuroscience Project
