Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
'This book provides a thoughtful and insightful engagement with the subject of medical law. In encouraging readers to think thematically across different substantive areas, the authors have succeeded in not only illuminating some of the most crucial ethical debates for this area of legal regulation, but of telling the story of the development of medical law and of highlighting the difficulty of the decisions that have to be reached. The book's conversational style is sure to provoke further interesting debate amongst its readership.' Julie McCandless, London School of Economics and Political Science
