Editorial Reviews


"The book is good enough to command a place in any serious bibliography of health care ethics, and I will certainly be recommending it." --The Times Higher Education Supplement

"Lucid, concise and to the point....The basic message is well worth consideration." --Bioethics

"This book offers a real-life view of the central issues involved in clinical medical ethics. Since the analysis of cases plays a critical role in this study, the authors have assembled a broad collection of histories encountered in their work as medical ethics educators and consultants. The cases are developed in substantial detail to reflect the rich medical and psychosocial complexity involved, and each is brought to a decision point a which a course of action must be chosen." --Issues in Law and Medicine

"The great value of this volume lies in the cases . . . . Not only to the case histories come from real life, they also come to life through a wealth of small details that nurses and clinicians will recognize. Any teacher of health care ethics ought to have these cases readily available." Bulletin of Medical Ethics

"I can recommend this book . . . to sociologists as an easy, well-thought-out introduction to the subject. . . . the general principles they propound are sound. Certainly, they are lucid and not dogmatic." --Medical Sociology News
