Rezension:

"Even readers unfamiliar with science will have no difficulty understanding this excellent book. David Goldstein clearly explains how modern genetics integrates with multiple aspects of Jewish history and demography."-Kenneth Kidd, Yale University -- Kenneth Kidd "Goldstein is one of a handful of people qualified to write a book such as this, and he succeeds very well in providing accounts both of scientific studies and of Jewish historical background."-Stephen Schaffner, Program in Medical and Population Genetics, The Broad Institute -- Stephen Schaffner "To complement the rich heritage of ancient Jewish text, Dr. Goldstein brings a new kind of ancient record-the history contained in our DNA. From the patterns of DNA variation among populations, he gleans insight into the social history of the Jewish people. Dr. Goldstein is a superb scientist and a captivating storyteller. Jacob's Legacy is a gem."-Eric Lander, Director of the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard, and one of the principal leaders of the Human Genome Project -- Eric Lander "An inspiring example of a magnificent analysis, written for a general audience, showing how multidisciplinary research using information from history, genetics, anthropology and more can give precious light on a great ethnos, the Jews."-Luigi Luca Cavalli-Sforza, professor of Genetics emeritus active, Stanford Medical School -- Luigi Luca Cavalli-Sforza "With a special gift for translating complex scientific concepts into language understandable to all, Goldstein delivers an accessible, personal, and fascinating book that tells the history of a group of people through the lens of genetics."-Duke Today Duke Today "[An] important and illuminating book-written with keen intelligence and deep love of its subject... [A] short but masterful book."-Jerome Groopman, New Republic -- Jerome Groopman New Republic "To paraphrase the old ad for rye bread, you don't have to be Jewish to love this book. It is a specific-and gripping-example of how the lens of genetics will eventually inform our understanding of all peoples."-Michelle Press, Scientific American -- Michelle Press Scientific American
