Ira H. Carmen is a political scientist, former member of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) Recombinant DNA Advisory Committee (RAC), and self-described “academic outsider” (p xiii). These characteristics unite in Politics in the Laboratory to generate a unique perspective on human genomics, past, present, and future. The first four chapters bring the political scientist’s examination of power relationships to bear on the natural scientific domain, while the last two bring an examination of human genomics to bear on the social scientific domain.
