Editorial Reviews


"Unique in its mastery of the difficult art of bringing theory and practical application together, and in its clarity and thoroughness of presentation....After having perused Brody's cases and having tried the model on instances from my own clinical experience, I can testify to feeling satisfied and confident when a case has passed through the model. It ensures that all aspects are taken into consideration, and the process leads rather gently and with reassuring thoroughness to judgments that seem to validate the model, as Brody anticipated. This is an extraordinary book. Its style is clear and easy to read, and the arguments have been carefully thought through. It deserves to be read by clinicians." --Medical Humanities Review

"[A] major new work in biomedical ethics....The reasoning is rigorous and the writing clear....In each case, the facts are presented and then pertinent questions are raised, analyzed, and summarized according to the pluralistic model of conflicting appeals....Each reader will undoubtedly take exception to one or another case resolution--and that, the author anticipates, is to be expected. After all, a complex moral theory capable of providing guidance in the resolution of complex medical problems must be open to continued modification. But if this new model, when put to use, in fact helps to resolve hard cases, it will recommend itself. The proof of the pudding is in the eating." --The New England Journal of Medicine

"Thorough and compelling. A valuable addition to the continuing debate and of interest to all concerned, both professionals and general readers." --Choice

"Baruch Brody's book. . . could not have been written at a better time. Many will be sympathetic to his rejection of ethical 'monisms' and the tyranny of principles they impose on the complexity of real moral 'dilemmas'." --Hastings Center Report

"A well written exploration of medical ethics that is challenging and informative." --British Medical Journal--

"Brody makes an important contribution to that literature." --Bioethics--

"Unusually rich in diversity, these cases are often poignantly credible examples of the confusion and uncertainty of decision-making in real life. Coupled with the author's sensible and sensitive applications of his theoretical model, these provocative case studies should make the book a valuable resource for classroom or community group." --Concern for Dying Newsletter
