Bioethics Reader by Professor Ruth Chadwick
Book DescriptionA collection celebrating some of the best essays from the Blackwell journals, Bioethics and Developing World Bioethics. * Contributors include Helga Kuhse, Michael Selgelid and Baroness Mary Warnock, former Chair of the British Government's Committee of Inquiry into Human Fertilization and Embryology's. * Traces some of the most important concerns of the 1980s, such as the ethics of euthanasia, reproductive technologies, the allocation of scarce medical resources, surrogate motherhood, through to a range of new issues debated today, particularly in the field of genetics. * Includes contributions that are still as hotly debated today as they were 20 years ago and serves as a salutary reminder that free and open discussion is vital to the health of the discipline itself. * Includes eight sections comprising some of the journals' best publications in methodological issues, the health care professional-patient relationship, public health ethics, research ethics, genetics, as well as beginning- and end-of-life issues. * Will serve the academic bioethicists as well as students of bioethics as an excellent source book.
