Product Description

The challenge of studying bioethics is covering all the necessary material in limited class time. This new casebook succeeds in emphasizing the breadth of the field while making it accessible to students. Bioethics and The Law uses an integrative approach, a coherent "lifespan" organization, and practical applications and pedagogy to facilitate both teaching and learning. In this distinctive new text, the authors:

Take a multidisciplinary approach that combines legal materials with jurisprudential, philosophical, and sociological materials to provide a variety of theoretical frames from which to examine legal concepts;
Represent strong expressions of different points of view within debates about bioethical issues, in addition to important cases and explanatory materials;
Value all responsible opinions while assisting students in situating their own voices within ongoing debates;
Demonstrate the need to mediate the discontinuity between the law's focus on broad rules and the bioethicist's concern with context and detail;
Require students to consider the ethical implications of managed care, of the shifting parameters of the provider/patient relationship in healthcare, and of the role of government in designing and implementing programs such as Medicaid and Medicare.
