Munson (philosophy of science and medicine, the University of Missouri-St. Louis) draws on his skills as a novelist and his background in ethics, biology, and medicine to present both classic and current cases in bioethics, showing how moral problems erupt in everyday life. A succinct outline of ethical theories provides students with tools needed to apply principles in each case. The Tuskegee syphilis study, stem cells, cloning, Cold War radiation experiments, and the Human Genome Project are some of the cases examined. There is no subject index. Annotation c.
