Review:


"The authors...have expanded almost every important discussion of theory and principle, and in so doing, have brought much greater clarity and precision to their text. They add new material, reflecting the new problems that medicine and health care face...(AIDS is a prominent example). This third edition is essentially a new book, far better in style and contents than its already satisfactory predecessors." --Hastings Center Report


"Authoritative...Well-written and erudite...Those who read the text...will find their time rewarded by an appreciation for two of the finer analytical minds in biomedical ethics and by knowledge of a remarkable amount of literature." --The Journal of Religion
