Ashgate Publishing, Ltd., 28.03.2014 - 240 Seiten
This volume brings together contributions exploring the mutual relationships between genetics, markets, societies, and identities in genetics and genomics. It draws upon the recent transdisciplinary debate on how socio-cultural factors influence understandings of ‘genetics2.0' and shows how individual and collective identities are challenged or reinforced by cultural meanings and practices of genetics. This book will become a standard reference for everyone seeking to make sense of the controversies and shifts in the field of genetics in the second decade of the twenty-first century.
