Table of contents
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
Arras, Fenton, and Kukla have put together an interesting, fresh resource on philosophical bioethics. Though they include essays on standard bioethical concerns-for example, the beginning of life, the end of life, biomedical research-they also provide essays on social justice usually treated in volumes on the ethics of public health (human rights, health disparities, population health, and globalization). This is a welcome change. (...) Summing Up: Recommended."
M. M. Gillis, Herbert Wertheim College of Medicine, Florida International University in CHOICE
