About the book:

This text provides coverage of the most discussed topics and up-to-date cases in medical ethics. Each topic is enriched with important background, history and context, and supplemented with a discussion of the most pertinent philosophical theories and ethical issues behind it. Anecdotal updates are included at the end of chapters to give readers insights into what has happened to some of the people involved in these cases. This edition features three new chapters and significant revision to all of the other chapters. The chapter on Seattle's "God Committee" addresses the issue of organ transplants and a new chapter on Dr Jack Kevorkian looks at the ethics of physician-assisted suicide and the issue of reforming the health-care system.
