May 04, 2001

Genetics, says sociologist Barbara Katz Rothman, isn't just a science. It's a way of thinking, an ideology. She joins us today on Focus to discuss some of the controversial topics at the forefront of the field and how she addresses them in her recent book The Book of Life: A Personal Guide to Race, Normality, and the Implications of the Human Genome Project.

Guest: Barbara Katz Rothman (Professor of Sociology, City University of New York; author of The Book of Life: A Personal Guide to Race, Normality, and the Implications of the Human Genome Project)
