May's book is a helpful overview and introduction to the political framework of bioethics decision making within a liberal society. It touches explicitly on the issues of perceived and actual lack of competence, substituted decision making, advanced directives and the important roles of ethics committees and consultants. There is no doubt that this book marks an important contribution to the literature.(Christopher Newell, Ph.D. Metapsychology)
May's book focuses on an extremely important, but much neglected and misunderstood area of bioethics, that is, the implications of a liberal constitutional political framework for bioethical decision-making.(Mark P. Aulisio, Case Western Reserve University, Center for Biomedical Ethics)
