The first study of its kind in English, Frameworks of Choice provides a comprehensive overview of predictive and genetic testing in China, Japan, India, and Sri Lanka. The volume sheds light on the resources available in each of these countries; analyzes the social, political, and economic backgrounds of those choosing or choosing not to undergo testing; and discusses genetic testing in relation to genetic discrimination, biomedical exploitation, the distribution of health care resources, and nationalism.
