Synopsis: In the continuing media furore over 'designer babies' and the race to complete the map of human DNA - in other words, to identify the individual genes that make us who we are - scientists and commentators rarely use the word that describes this new ethical and technical minefield: 'eugenics'. Since the horrendous experiments of Nazi death camps the word has laboured under a sinister reputation, yet those perverted and racially motivated abominations should not blind us to what eugenics really is: the use of science for the qualitative and quantitative improvement of our genetic constitution. David Galton's superbly clear-headed, sensible and accessible survey of the history, ethics and potential of this much-maligned branch of science makes fascinating reading. From Ancient Greece to Charles Darwin, Adolf Hitler and the Human Genome Project, IN OUR OWN IMAGE is a brilliant account of our struggle to change the way we are, and where that struggle might take us in the future.

About the Author: David Galton is Professor of the Department of Metabolism and Genetics at Bart's Hospital in London.
