  • Features new coverage of the latest debates on hot topics such as genetic screening, the use of embryonic human stem cells, and resource allocation between patients.
  • The selections are independent of any particular approach to bioethics.
  • Can be used as a source book to complement A Companion to Bioethics (1999).

Review:
Since it was first published in 1999, Helga Kuhse and Peter Singer’s Bioethics: An Anthology has become established as the definitive one-volume collection of key primary readings in bioethics. Alongside coverage of issues such as reproduction, genetics, life and death, and animal experimentation, this expanded and revised edition now features essays on hot topics such as genetic screening, the use of embryonic human stem cells, and resource allocation between patients. New section introductions written by the editors shed light on the matters explored, and an extensive index makes it easy to navigate the text.


Designed to complement A Companion to Bioethics, also edited by Helga Kuhse and Peter Singer(1999), the volume will continue to be of great value as both a textbook and reference work, suitable not only for students of philosophy and moral theology, but also for doctors, nurses, sociologists, lawyers, and others working in health care and the biomedical sciences.
