Overview

Fourteen leading authorities in their respective fields provide the mo st comprehensive and current survey of issues in medical ethics ever w ritten. Each author is given the opportunity to write a chapter survey ing a critical issue in one of the major subject areas in medical ethi cs. Within each chapter, the author develops a discussion of the criti cal concepts, arguments and positions in a particular facet of medical ethics, without arguing for one position or another. Since the first edition of Medical Ethics in 1989, important changes have occurred tha t affect every chapter in this book. To address these changes, Robert Veatch has asked the original contributors to address the developments of the past six years. Additionally, Ronald Bayer has contributed a n ew chapter on AIDS and ethics. Norman Daniels, former member of the et hics advisory group for President Clinton's Health Care Task Force, pr ovides a framework for understanding the ethical dimension of the heal th care policy debate.
