Text

Firmly grounded in empirical data, this book critically engages with the relational, moral and ethical issues surrounding genetic testing in contemporary society. Competing accounts of autonomy, responsibility and blame – by families, by professionals and in the public sphere – are analyzed rigorously within a discourse-rhetorical framework, paying particular attention to the situated management of risks of knowing and risks of disclosure.
