Editorial Reviews

Review

From the reviews:

“The concept of autonomy, as intended in the traditional Anglo-American bioethical discourse, is extensively discussed in the book … . The contributions presented in the book are of interest for students and scholars trained in law, bioethics, and health care. The anthology can also represent a good basis for people who wish to start studying human rights in a clinical or research context. Thanks to the ability of the authors … they are written clearly enough to be understandable to non-specialists as well.”­­­ (Corinna Porteri, Theoretical Medicine and Bioethics, Vol. 31, March, 2010)

“This is a rich, powerful collection of essays dealing with important issues facing modern health care. … begins with a series of excellent essays on human rights which explores the relationship of human rights, social policy and health care. … The essays themselves are inspired by his work. … This volume is a fitting testimony to his concerns and commitment, as the questions of human dignity have and will continue to play a central role in our debates about new, revolutionary health care technologies.”­­­ (Kevin Wm. Wildes, Human Rights Reviews, Vol. 12, 2011)
