Recent debate about the ethical and regulatory dimensions of developments in genetics has sidelined societal and cultural aspects, which arguably are indispensable for a nuanced understanding of the complexities of the topic. Regulatory and ethical debates benefit from taking seriously this ’third dimension’ of culture, which often determines the configurations and limits of the space within which scientific, ethical and legal debate can take place. To fill this gap, 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.

Review:

'This is a timely and important publication that fills a gap in research and teaching. The editors have done a great job putting together a range of thoughtful analyses on the ethical, social and personal challenges that follow when genetics leaves the lab and the headlines and becomes everyday issues for ordinary people. I will be happy to recommend this book to my students.'Lene Koch, University of Copenhagen, Denmark'As technology produces an unprecedented level of genetic information, this book successfully analyses the changing social and ethical implications and challenges for individuals and societies. This is a clear and essential reference for both academics and lay readers that explores the dramatic present and future impact of genetics from a social, political and scientific perspective.'Tim Spector, King's College London, UK
