9780195031270: Who Should Decide?: Paternalism in Health Care

"A very good book indeed: there is scarcely an issue anyone has thought to raise about the topic which Childress fails to treat with sensitivity and good judgement....Future discussions of paternalism in health care will have to come to terms with the contentions of this book, which must be reckoned the best existing treatment of its subject."--Ethics. "A clear, scholarly and balanced analysis....This is a book I can recommend to physicians, ethicists, students of both fields, and to those most affected--the patients themselves."--Edmund D. Pellegrino, John Carroll Professor of Medicine and Medical Humanities, Georgetown University Medical Center.

James F. Childress, University of Virginia.

Review:

"A very good book indeed: there is scarcely an issue anyone has thought to raise about the topic which Childress fails to treat with sensitivity and good judgment....The best existing treatment of the subject."--Ethics

"An important work....Once read, [it] becomes indispensable to one's subsequent formulations of the subject."--The New England Journal of Medicine

"A clear, scholarly and balanced analysis....This is a book I can recommend to physicians, ethicists, students of both fields, and to those most affected--the patients themselves."--Edmund D. Pellegrino, Georgetown University Medical Center

"Readable, reasoned, and balanced....Childress has provided us with a comprehensive work which helps us confront this question."--Law, Medicine and Health Care

"In a time of heightened consumer consciousness in which at least some are demanding a larger role in their own care, this is a timely volume for both the consumers and the providers of health care." --Journal of Religious Studies
