I have recently completed my book mss. A Brave New Eugenics: CRISPR and the Human Future which can be downloaded here. While it gives a popular (I hope accessible) account of CRISPR and its history, as well as provides a reflection on eugenics, it does defend human germ-line intervention for a host of diseases caused by single dominant genes with high specificity. Comments and criticism are most welcome, either through the comments section of this entry or by direct email to me.

I’m looking forward to reading the book in its entirety, Sahotra! Is your view that only diseases with single, dominant genes with specificity may be candidates for human germline editing or is it a weaker claim?
