Considered a classic in the field, Troy Duster's Backdoor to Eugenics was a groundbreaking book that grappled with the social and political implications of the new genetic technologies. Completely updated and revised, this work will be welcomed back into print as we struggle to understand the pros and cons of prenatal detection of birth defects; gene therapies; growth hormones; and substitute genetic answers to problems linked with such groups as Jews, Scandanavians, Native American, Arabs and African Americans. Duster's book has never been more timely.

Review:

[A]n arresting commentary on social and ethical issues in modern human genetics....Now updated with reflections on the employment of human molecular genetics in such sensitive areas as crime and behavior, Duster's book speaks all the more pertinently and provocatively to the hazards arising from the misuse of genetic theory and information.

About the Author:

Troy Duster is on the faculty at the University of California Berkeley; Duster is also Professor of Sociology at New York University.

Pierre Bourdieu was a French sociologist, anthropologist, and philosopher.
