Book Cover
A Companion to Bioethics: Second Edition

A Companion to Bioethics presents the central issues and concepts in bioethics in an authoritative yet highly accessible manner. Now fully revised and updated to reflect the current state of the field, the 49 essays, each specially written by leading experts, span an unparalleled range of topics, including discussion of embryos and fetuses, new genetics, life and death, resource allocation, organ donations, AIDS, human and animal experimentation, health care, and teaching. Subjects new to this edition include cloning, genetic enhancement, infectious disease, global pharmaceutical markets, and bioethics in the developing world.

A Companion to Bioethics is an essential work of reference for doctors, nurses, lawyers, journalists, philosophers, moral theologians, sociologists and the general lay-reader interested in the ethical issues that are transforming our lives.
