"The Blackwell Companion to Law and Society" is an authoritative study of the relationship between law and social interaction. Thirty-two original essays by an international group of expert scholars examine a wide range of critical questions. Authors represent various theoretical, methodological, and political commitments, creating the first truly global overview of the field. This title examines the relationship between law and social interactions in thirty-three original essay by international experts in the field.It reflects the world-wide significance of North American law and society scholarship. It addresses classical areas and new themes in law and society research, including: the gap between law on the books and law in action; the complexity of institutional processes; the significance of new media; and, the intersections of law and identity. It engages the exciting work now being done in England, Europe, Australia, and New Zealand, South Africa, Israel, as well as 'Third World' scholarship.

Daniel Kevles traces the study and practice of eugenics - the science of "improving" the human species by exploiting theories of heredity - from its inception in the late 19th century to its most recent manifestation within the field of genetic engineering. Dealing seriously and objectively with the development of human genetics as a scientific and medical discipline, it also contains stories of competition and conflict among scientists who have dominated the field.

The Human Genome Project aims to map all the genes spelled out by the entire three-billion-letter genetic code embodied in the DNA of human cells. The multi-billion-dollar project, estimated to last for ten to 20 years, has already proved to be a subject of considerable controversy. In this account of the protracted struggle to launch the genome project, the author unravels the tangled scientific and political threads of the story, relying on primary documents gathered as events unfolded and supplemented by interviews with all the main players. The result is a case study on a project with far-reaching medical and ethical implications.
