Editorial Reviews


"Recommended. Lower-level undergraduates and above; general readers." -- A. P. Schwab, Indiana University-- Purdue University Fort Wayne

"The introduction of 16 pages by the editor is riveting and ties the whole volume together, under the title "First Steps Toward a Comparative Anthropology and Sociology of Globalizing Bioethics: Reflecting on the Cultural Meanings and Social Functions of Bioethics" ... it has significant utility in the evolution of bioethics training courses that still are being established with 20th-century (actually 18th-century!) colonist ideology, and this would be on my required reading list for graduates in bioethics in any country, and for anyone involved in bioethics education globally." -- Darryl R. J. Macer, UNESCO, The American Journal of Bioethics

"In this book, studies from high-, low- and middle-income countries are presented by 27
authors, 12 are trained bioethicists/philosophers, 10 social scientists and 5 physicians... The book is well written and includes a detailed index. All in all, a worthwhile and important contribution to self-reflection by all concerned in global public health thinking." -- European Journal of Public Health
