9780415896665: The Routledge Companion to Bioethics (Routledge Philosophy Companions)

The Routledge Companion to Bioethics is a comprehensive reference guide to a wide range of contemporary concerns in bioethics. The volume orients the reader in a changing landscape shaped by globalization, health disparities, and rapidly advancing technologies. Bioethics has begun a turn toward a systematic concern with social justice, population health, and public policy. While also covering more traditional topics, this volume fully captures this recent shift and foreshadows the resulting developments in bioethics. It highlights emerging issues such as climate change, transgender, and medical tourism, and re-examines enduring topics, such as autonomy, end-of-life care, and resource allocation.

Review:

"Assembled here are some of the most influential and incisive voices examining many of the cutting edge issues in bioethics today. There is much to learn from the contributors, a good deal to debate and a wealth of ideas that merit further research and study."

Arthur Caplan, New York University Langone Medical Center, USA

"The editors of this Companion have produced a volume that fruitfully reflects their respective areas of expertise and careers in the field of bioethics. They have thus given us a book that offers students at any level a reliable guide to classical debates in bioethics, cutting edge contributions on issues of global resource allocation, and incisive essays involving gender and the body that are all too often excluded from similar books on offer. I cannot think of a better one-stop-shopping introduction to the field."

Bonnie Steinbock, University of Albany, USA

"Erudite and accessible, the new Routledge Companion to Bioethics will be an invaluable resources for students and scholars alike. It provides a window to the field with a sweeping view of pressing issues presented by some of the leading lights of the discipline."

Alex John London, Carnegie Mellon University, USA

"An excellent collection encompassing a broad range of timely issues in Bioethics."

Thomas H. Murray, The Hastings Center, USA
