Abstract:

"The ethical issues we face in healthcare, justice, and human rights extend beyond national boundaries--they are global and cross-cultural in scope. Editors Wanda Teays, John-Stewart Gordon, and Alison Dundes Renteln have assembled the works of an interdisciplinary, international team of experts in bioethics into a comprehensive, innovative and accessible book. It opens with theoretical frameworks that inform a Global Bioethics, followed by three units for an in-depth look at contemporary issues in the field. These are human rights, culture, and public health--with each unit including theoretical discussions and lively case studies. Topics range from torture and lethal injection to euthanasia, sex selection, vulnerable human subjects, to health equity, safety and public health, and environmental disasters like Bhopal, Fukushima, and more"--Provided by publisher.
