Summary

Cases in Bioethics, Third Edition, contains 59 cases, each of which presents a difficult question that regularly confronts medical practitioners. Each case is discussed by two or three ethicists, physicians, or hospital administrators. Students are placed in the thick of each difficult situation.
· Excellent springboard for discussion of major issues in bioethics.
· Cases and discussions catch students' attention by providing concrete examples of general issues discussed in class.
· An excellent supplement to a more traditional bioethics text, it can be packaged with Ridley, Beginning Bioethics: An Integrated Text with Readings.
