Editorial Reviews

Review

'The SAGE Handbook of Health Care Ethics is a timely and important work. Too often health care issues are treated as if they are separate issues, disconnected from other areas of global justice theory and practice and divorced from the pressures of global governance and markets. This book is a welcome attempt to redress this gap.'

Heather Widdows, Professor of Global Ethics, Philosophy Department, University of Birmingham

'This Handbook offers comprehensive coverage of the changing field of health care ethics. Providing both an international and real-life perspective on the contexts in which ethical debates occur, it will be invaluable to those interested in the field.'

Dr Mairi Levitt, Senior Lecturer, Lancaster University
