A fluent, well-researched account by two leading medical reporters of the scientific advances, clinical observations, and social forces that led to the Human Genome Project. It begins with a short account of genetics before Watson and Crick and of their revolutionary discovery, and moves quickly into describing the new knowledge about clinical problems, the further scientific new steps, and the persons—clinicians, laypersons, and scientists—that combined to accelerate human genetics to the point where the project could be seen as a great need for further radical advances in our ability to treat and modify genetically determined disease.
