Product description


"The indispensable collection of essays for physicians, philosophers, genetic counselors, and public health professionals."

"This is by far the best text in bioethics for upper level and graduate courses. It's compendious and thorough and includes those all important court opinions connected with the major issues. The text is always improved and updated with each new edition while retaining the gold of the past editions."

"A text that entices and encourages discussion regarding social, political and economic issues to consider as we adopt a new health care system."

"Valuable anthology of many of the major papers in contemporary bioethics which serves both to keep it relevant and to maintain its critical edge."

"A comprehensive but concise overview of major issues and perspectives in bioethics that includes summaries of key cases, excerpts from important theoretical approaches and policies, and attempts at practical resolutions of contemporary problems."
