Rule (professor emeritus, University of Maryland Dental School) and Veatch (medical ethics, Georgetown University) have added a new first chapter on the history and development of the professions to this second edition of book designed to sensitize dental professionals to the important role of ethics in dentistry and to provide a general approach to ethical reasoning in dental-related problem solving. Individual case discussions have been expanded to contain more background material and additional guidance in the techniques of ethical problem solving, while the total number of cases has been reduced from 111 to 88. Twelve new cases invite discussion on ethical issues faced by the entire profession of dentistry. Annotation © 2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
