Mutants: On the Form, Varieties and Errors of the Human Body - Livres de poche

2005, ISBN: 0006531644

[SR: 37295], Paperback, [EAN: 9780006531647], Harper Perennial, Harper Perennial, Book, [PU: Harper Perennial], 2005-05-03, Harper Perennial, Full of fascinating and bizarre cases of genetic mutation and irregularity, 'Mutants' is an amazing exploration of the human form in all its beautiful and unique guises. Why are most of us born with one nose, two legs, ten fingers and twenty-four ribs - and some of us not? Why do most of us stop growing in our teens - while others just keep going? Why do some us have heads of red hair - and others no hair at all? The human genome, we are told, makes us what we are. But how? Armand Marie Leroi takes us to the extremes of human mutation - from the grotesque to the beautiful, and often both at the same time - to explain how we become what we are. Through the tales of long-lived Croatian dwarves, ostrich-footed Wadoma tribesmen, sex-changing French convent girls, and many more wonders of human development, Leroi has written a brilliant narrative account of our genetic grammar and people whose bodies have revealed it., 270847, Diseases & Disorders, 270852, Immunology, 270855, Infectious & Contagious Diseases, 270860, Oncology, 270842, Internal Medicine, 270767, Medical & Healthcare Practitioners, 74, Health, Family & Lifestyle, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books, 270830, History of Medicine, 271389, Other Historical Subjects, 65, History, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books, 277942, Genetics, 277912, Biological Sciences, 57, Science & Nature, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books, 922520, Popular Maths, 278320, Mathematics, 57, Science & Nature, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books, 922940, Genetics, 922868, Popular Science, 57, Science & Nature, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books, 571558, Genetics, 564340, Biology, 564334, Scientific, Technical & Medical, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books, 571538, Human Biology, 564340, Biology, 564334, Scientific, Technical & Medical, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books, 276412, Anthropology, 496628, Customs & Folklore, 276456, Ethnography & Ethnology, 275944, Festivals & Celebrations, 496632, Methodology, 276415, Physical, 276413, Social & Cultural, 276411, Social Sciences, 60, Society, Politics & Philosophy, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books

Mutants: On the Form, Varieties and Errors of the Human Body. Armand Marie Leroi - livre d'occasion

ISBN: 9780006531647

ID: 11822968

"Who are the mutants? We are all mutants. But some of us are more mutant than others." Variety, even deformity, may seem like an unlikely route by which to approach normality, even perfection. Yet much of what we know about the mechanisms of human development, growth, and aging comes from the study of people who are afflicted with congenital diseases, most of which have genetic causes. Congenital abnormalities reveal not only errors within the womb, but also our evolutionary history. In "Mutants," Armand Marie Leroi gives a brilliant narrative account of our genetic grammar and the people whose bodies have revealed it, balancing both the science and the stories behind some of history's most captivating figures-including a French convent girl who found herself changing sex upon puberty; children who, echoing Homer's Cyclops, are born with a single eye in the middle of their foreheads; a village of long-lived Croatian dwarves; a hairy family who was kept at the Burmese royal court for four generations (and from whom Darwin took one of his keenest insights into heredity); and the ostrich-footed Wadoma of the Zambezi River Valley. Stepping effortlessly from myth to molecular biology, this elegant, humane, and illuminating book is about us all. Mutants: On the Form, Varieties and Errors of the Human Body. Armand Marie Leroi Leroi, Armand Marie, Harper Perennial

0006531644

Fascinating narrative history of medicine and of what happens when molecular genetics are formed abnormally in a human.
