Editorial Reviews

Review

In short, Worst Case Bioethics offers a valuable consideration of how public health policy is sometimes shaped by fear in a counterproductive manner. The book is well written, well reasoned, and persuasive. I recommend it highly to all who are interested in bioethics, public health policy, or national security policy. Science Annas persuasively argues in Worst Case Bioethics that basing policy on extreme nightmare possibilities leads to a distortion of fundamental ethical principles and legal protections. Lancet Most readers interested in these topics will find this a creative and insightful rubric for examining different aspects of U.S. healthcare and law. Dr R MacDougall, Saint Louis University
