From the Back Cover:

Medical ethics and the medical profession are inseparable, yet the formal teaching of medical ethics is a relatively new phenomenon. Furthermore, since the introduction of managed health care, with the physician becoming a 'health provider' and the patient a 'client', the whole concept of medical ethics has undergone a sea change. The contractual relationship between the provider and the client engenders caution and precaution, resulting in defensive medicine.

Review:

From the reviews:

“This is a basic, yet highly organized, history of medical ethics that pays special attention to Islamic ethics and to contemporary ethical concerns and dilemmas. ... This book is suitable for healthcare professionals and students interested in a broader view of medical ethics that encompasses Islamic ethics. It will be especially useful for physicians living in the Middle East and the Indian subcontinent.” (Lauren L. Baker, Doody’s Book Reviews, October, 2014)

“Published by Springer this 320-page Book will be extremely useful for medical specialists, all healthcare professionals including medical students, nurses, paramedics and readers interested in philosophical, theological, secular and social issues. Physicians in Middle East and Indian sub-continent will find it of special interest though many healthcare professionals in Europe and USA will also find it quite informative and interesting to read.” (Pulse International, pulsepakistan.com, March, 2014)
