Editorial Reviews Review

Like the first test-tube baby, like Roe v. Wade, like Dr. Kevorkian, Dolly the cloned sheep has opened up new dilemmas in ethics, biology, and medicine. Director for the Center of Bioethics at the University of Pennsylvania, Arthur Caplan has a talent for getting to the heart of such issues, teasing out the complexities, and forecasting the implications of ethical positions. Skirting the mire of polemics, Caplan comes back time and again to the notion of trust and need to work through ethical dilemmas as a group. Broad in its scope and technical at times in its depth, Am I My Brothers Keeper? is an insightful, up-to-date exploration of our most daunting ethical conundrums.

From Library Journal

In this collection of essays, Caplan (director, Ctr. for Bioethics, Univ. of Pennsylvania), a prolific author and an internationally recognized expert in the field of bioethics, discusses current bioethical controversies, including assisted reproduction, artificial hearts, fetal tissue transplantation, the potential use of animals as organ donors, living organ donors, assisted suicide, eugenics, cloning, and the definition of death and disease. Caplan provides a brief overview of each topic, summarizes current arguments surrounding the controversy, then offers his opinion. Because entries are brief, this volume would not be of value for in-depth research, but it does provide a useful introduction to a variety of bioethical issues. Recommended for academic libraries and for libraries with a concentration in ethics.
