Although the 'Israeli case' of bioethics has been well documented, this book offers a novel understanding of Israeli bioethics that is a milestone in the comparative literature of bioethics. Bringing together a range of experts, the book's interdisciplinary structure employs a contemporary, sociopolitical-oriented approach to bioethics issues, with an emphasis on empirical analysis, that will appeal not only to scholars of bioethics, but also to students of law, medicine, humanities, and social sciences around the world. Its focus on the development of bioethics in Israel makes it especially relevant to scholars of Israeli society - both in and out of Israel - as well as medical practitioners and health policymakers in Israel.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'Bioethics and Biopolitics in Israel thoughtfully and systematically addresses questions of biomedical ethics within the context of a political setting in which core moral assumptions of health and well-being too often take back seats to existential tensions of discord and survival. Looking compellingly beneath the headlines, the book uncovers vital new insights about the ways that ostensibly liberal projects morph to serve conservative ideologies; and about the oft-surprising and frequently complex alliances that can form across boundaries and borders when health serves as a potential framework for common cause.' Jonathan Metzl, Vanderbilt University, Tennessee, and author of The Protest Psychosis
'A must-read for any scholar of bioethics, medical sociology, and STS who wants to understand the discourse of bioethics and how this discourse is embedded in national, historical, and cultural contexts. This book is an important contribution to the self-reflection of bioethics as a discipline.' Silke Schicktanz, University of Goettingen, and author of Comparative Empirical Bioethics: Dilemmas of Genetic Testing and Euthanasia in Israel and Germany
