From the Inside Flap
"A marvelously engaging book, one that . . . [could make] a large difference in how medical-legal issues are understood by physicians and many others in this huge industry."--Theodore R. Marmor, Yale University
"One of the most important and exciting I have read in biomedical ethics in the last few years. The author's firm grounding in medicine and law and his understanding of moral and political philosophy have enabled him to write an exceptionally valuable book that exposes the possibilities and limitations of different models of ethics in a liberal state. . . . I strongly recommend this clear and illuminating book."--James F. Childress, University of Virginia
