An authoritative, exhaustive monograph on the diseases representing genetic traits within Jewish populations. Much of the text describes the features that characterize these disorders in persons of any ethnic origin, and the salient values of this book are in the attention to specific epidemiologic details such as gene pregnancies in various Jewish populations. Two of the four opening chapters will be useful to many readers not interested in the genetics of disease; they describe the origins and present features of the world's Jewish populations and summarize content of the Bible and the Talmud reflecting genetic disorders. Recommended for clinical libraries
