    schema:reviewBody ""Although the field of bioethics is about 40 years old, its emergence and growth have only recently become an object of study for social scientists. The View from Here presents the best of this new work: research that explores how bioethics is shaped by, and gives shape to, not just medicine and health care, but law, religion, politics, and emerging global markets. Moving beyond armchair theorizing about bioethics, the articles collected here - empirical studies of bioethics as it is practiced on the ground in the clinic, the laboratory, and in the creation of social policy - engage the field of bioethics and suggest new avenues for collaboration between social scientists and bioethicists." "The understanding of bioethics offered by this volume makes it an essential text for medical sociologists, bioethicists, social scientists, health care practitioners, and the increasingly large audience of laypeople interested in how bioethics is influencing both medical science and medical care."--Jacket." ;
