Culled from the pages of the groundbreaking Lahey Clinic journal Medical Ethics â€“ this book offers students, healthcare professionals, and the general public insights into key ethical concepts and their practical applications through the writings of physicians, philosophers, theologians, nurses, humanists, anthropologists, psychologists, historians, policy experts, lawyers, and others.
The volume includes introductory articles by the editor, Dr. David Steinberg, and discussions of bioethical issues in the clinical arena; ethical challenges associated with advances in biotechnology, genetics, and reproductive medicine; legal perspectives; physician-assisted suicide and euthanasia; health policy and distributive justice; the experience of illness, and many more critical topics.....
"Dr. David Steinberg has for many years edited one of the most illuminating and useful journals on medical ethics. From that work he has drawn forth a splendid book. It has four virtues: it touches on just about every important issue in bioethics; it is wonderfully readable; he has enlisted almost everyone of importance to write for him; and, most mercifully, the articles and case comments are short and to the point. That adds up to a fine and valuable book."
â€”Daniel Callahan, Director, International Program, The Hastings Center
"This is a very high quality collection of essays covering a wide range of issues in bioethics. The individual essays are short, lively, and accessible to general readers as well as to professionals. The editor is to be congratulated for having gotten most of the leading figures in medical ethics to contribute to the Lahey Clinic journal Medical Ethics, and in turn to this volume."
â€”Dan W. Brock, Ph.D., Frances Glessner Lee Professor of Medical Ethics, Department of Social Medicine, Director, Division of Medical Ethics, Harvard Medical School
"An attractive collage of trenchant bioethics commentaries that provides a concise and authoritative entry way into many of the major clinical ethics debates of our day."
â€”George J. Annas, chair, Department of Health Law, Bioethics, and Human Rights, Boston University School of Public Health, and author of American Bioethics
