Cross Cultural Perspectives in Medical Ethics is an anthology of readings on the medical ethics of the major religious, philosophical, and medical traditions. It starts with the definitive twentieth century analysis of the Hippocratic Oath and then shows how most religious and philosophical traditions differ from the ethical commitments contained in that classic document. The second edition includes, for the first time, articles presenting perspectives on both African and African-American medical ethics.
