Pub. Date:

..". this book is though-provoking, bringing a scientist s reason and a moralist s outrage to bear on a subject that s largely escaped attention." Wired

"Caplan s choice of topics is broad and his opinions challenging.... This volume will interest the general public. It is a good survey of a broad range of ethical issues, as seen by one prominent bioethicist who has thought much about the subject. Caplan s well-merited reputation as a commentator and interpreter between the scholarly and the public arena is reaffirmed in this book." The Washington Post

"Arthur Caplan with assiduous effort, unflagging energy, encyclopedic knowledge, and imposing talent has become America s most visible commentator on bioethics." The Philadelphia Inquirer

"Arthur Caplan is perhaps the most quoted bioethicist in the US and this new collection of essays illustrates why." Nature Medicine

..". an important book of essays addressing the most problematic and persistent questions in the realm of contemporary bioethics. He offers a highly readable text balancing irony and incisive analysis with a palpable sense of moral urgency as he confronts a variety of subjects." Curtis W. Hart, BCC

"Careful consideration of some of the knottier bioethical problems of our times, by the director of the Center for Bioethics at the University of Pennsylvania, who fears that cynicism and mistrust have eroded our ability to see ourselves as our brothers keepers." Kirkus Reviews

"Caplan s particular skill is an ability to identify, analyze, and explain the extremely complex moral questions that grow out of changes in health care, science, and medicine." The New York Times Magazine

"An important critical voice for American medicine." The New England Journal of Medicine

..". a useful introduction to a variety of bioethical issues." Library Journal

In this impassioned book, Arthur L. Caplan, America s leading bioethicist, calls for an end to cynicism and mistrust in our approach to resolving health care issues. He brings this vision to discussions of some of the most exciting issues at the frontiers of medical ethics today including doctor-assisted suicide, gene therapy, and the headline-grabbing case of Dolly the sheep and the possibility that human beings might one day be cloned."
