     Ethics, as a branch of philosophy, can be traced back at least as far as the ancient Greeks, and so, too, can biomedical ethics be said to have its beginning with Hippocrates, the first physician. But Hippocrates would be astounded at the advances in medical science, at the ethical dilemmas now confronting the practitioners of modern medicine.
     While acknowledging the tradition, Walter Glannon's book makes us fully aware that biomedical ethics is a new field of study that is subject to many changes. The result is this new collection of readings, capturing the essence of the field here and now.
Major features include:
� Contemporary emphasis. 37 of the 42 selections were published in the 1990's
� Six major areas of biomedical ethics are covered:

  1. The Physician-Patient Relationship
  2. Research Involving Human Subjects
  3. Reproductive Rights and Technologies
  4. Genetics
  5. Death and Dying
  6. The Allocation of Scarce Medical Resources

� Significant coverage of feminist and cross-cultural perspectives
� The general introduction surveys the history of western medicine and the evolution of biomedical ethics
� Discussion questions, legal cases, and suggestions for further reading are meant to enlarge the student's understanding
