Risky Genes: Genetics, Breast Cancer and Jewish Identity
By Dr Jessica Mozersky
Published by Routledge ISBN-10: 0415502284, ISBN-13: 978-0415502283
Jessica Mozersky has written a valuable monograph that crosses the immense boundary between history, social science and culture on the one hand and molecular methods, genetic mutation testing and predictive testing on the other. Whilst the original data comes from Jessica's PhD, this book is not just a repackaging of her thesis. On the contrary, it details vast amounts of information about the history of Ashkenazi Jews, their culture over centuries and the medical, societal and racial discrimination they have endured.
