Reviews

'This is a comprehensive and carefully designed textbook that will attract many users in the health professions. The chapters, written by a group of distinguished authors, are presented in a format that is well suited to interactive educational use.' Bulletin of the World Health Organization 'This is a very comprehensive text and very well organised. ...the subject is treated from a systematic standpoint, concisely and precisely addressing ethics, law and policy and a practical resolution to the case studies is presented at the beginning of the 65 topics dealt with in separate chapters. ... This is a significant achievement and for a rigourous approach to a subject for practitioners and a concise overview of a topic for teachers, this is innovative and successful.' Nursing Ethics 'The Cambridge Textbook of Bioethics achieves something significant - it provides an original and valuable addition to an already crowded marketplace. The list of contributors reads like a Who's Who of bioethics. Many well-respected authors are included and the quality of writing reflects the esteem in which the contributors are held. ... The Cambridge Textbook of Bioethics is a textbook of the highest standard, with erudite, thoughtful and thought-provoking contributions on 60 topics. ... At the end, the reader is left reflecting not only on health care but on what it means to be altruistic, professional, ill, honest, vulnerable, political, dependent and simply human. This is a rare achievement for any book and is why this text is uniquely deserving of a place on even the most crowded bookshelves.' American Medical Association 'Overall The Cambridge Textbook of Bioethics is an invaluable tool for the clinician, student, professor, administrator and patient interested in improving the quality of healthcare in any clinical setting.' Critical Care Medicine 'The Cambridge Textbook has a clear focus on providing practical guidance ... all contributions are easily accessible, given their predefined and clear structure, concise and well referenced. Certainly, these features will make the Cambridge Textbook a greatly appreciated reference for health professionals in all disciplines.' Arthur Caplan 'Very few textbooks survive as long as the Osler textbook of medicine, which lasted for more than 3 generations and 25 editions. Nevertheless, I anticipate that The Cambridge Textbook of Bioethics will be the first of a series of editions and will be used and enjoyed by clinicians and bioethics students for many years to come.' Canadian Medical Association Journal '... this book fulfils all the requirements for a good practical ethics book and I suggest that all medical schools should have a copy of this book in their libraries.' Indian Journal of Medical Research 'The Cambridge Textbook of Bioethics is a comprehensive, helpful resource for understanding the breadth of ethical issues that emerge in medical settings. ... an excellent resource for getting the basic idea of varying issues ... serves as an important resource for engagement with this increasingly complex field.' thegospelcoalition.org
