Bioethics and Organ Transplantation in a Muslim Society by Farhat Moazam

Book Description

"Dr. Farhat Moazam has written a wonderful book, based on her extraordinary first-hand study...[S]he is an exceptionally gifted and evocative writer. Her book not only has the attributes of a superb piece of intellectual work, but it has literary artistic merit." -Renee C. Fox, Annenberg Professor Emerita of the Social Sciences at the University of Pennsylvania This is an ethnographic study of live, related kidney donation in Pakistan, based on Farhat Moazam's participant-observer research conducted at a public hospital. Her narrative is both a "thick" description of renal transplant cases and the cultural, ethical, and family conflicts that accompany them, and an object lesson in comparative bioethics.
