Since public health seeks to protect the health of populations, it inevitably confronts a range of ethical challenges having to do primarily with the friction between individual freedoms and what might be perceived as governmental paternalism. This volume brings together twenty-five articles by leading thinkers in the field, writing on topics that concern both classic and novel problems. They open up new terrain in each area, including tobacco and drug control, infectious disease, environmental and occupational health, the effect of new genetics on the publics health, and the impact of social inequalities on patterns of morbidity and mortality. The volume editors offer a context for discussion with introductory essays for each of the books five sections.

Review:


"The book is written for anyone with a scholarly or professional interest in public health ethics...The editors are well qualified, and many of the essays are written by well known scholars."--oody's


"This book includes thoughtful articles on public health responsibilities and limitations with respect to curtailing tobacco use and general health promotion...If health care reform is to be effective, howver, it is best to discuss the ethical side of public health openly, honestly, and with a degree of sophistication. This book is a good place to begin."--Inquiry


"This anthology provides an engaging overview of the emerging field of public health ethics...The book is likely to be a useful adjunct to courses on public health theory and practice, health policy, public health ethics, and health equity."--American Journal of Epidemiology


"The editors use a diverse scope of topics to infuse an encyclopedic breadth yet enjoyable read that sets a new standard for comprehensiveness on the subject. The many expert contributors adhere to a uniform template which brings together the collective experiences of those actively engaged in both research and clinical area covered, providing remarkable insight into the ethical dimensions of public health."--International Journal of Epidemiology
