Multiple Autisms: Spectrums of Advocacy and Genomic Science
|Title:||Multiple Autisms: Spectrums of Advocacy and Genomic Science|
|Publisher||University of Minnesota Press|
Is there a gene for autism? Despite a billion-dollar, twenty-year effort to find out—and the more elusive the answer, the greater the search seems to become—no single autism gene has been identified. In Multiple Autisms, Jennifer S. Singh sets out to discover how autism emerged as a genetic disorder and how this affects those who study autism and those who live with it. This is the first sustained analysis of the practices, politics, and meaning of autism genetics from a scientific, cultural, and social perspective.
