Emphasizing cases in order to illustrate the medical, scientific, and social issues raised in bioethics, Munson (philosophy of science and medicine, U. of Missouri-St. Louis) also uses analytical text, readings, and "decision scenarios" to make his points. Chapters cover such topics as patient autonomy and confidentiality, race and gender in medicine; genetic and reproductive control, medical resources, abortion, impaired infants and medical futility, euthanasia, and general theories of ethics. Munson has made an effort to include opposing viewpoints on controversial issues. Annotation ©2003 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
