MEDIA REVIEWS

'With clarity and an emphasis on case studies and practical reasoning Professor Campbell gently guides the reader through many of the fascinating current issues in bioethics in a concise, accessible, highly engaging and intelligible way. This little book is an essential first stop for anyone interested in bioethics and medical ethics, either as a student, teacher, healthcare practitioner.'

Rebecca Bennett, University of Manchester, UK.

'This second edition lives up to its title by giving the basics without becoming perfunctory or partisan. It has a light touch without being superficial. It gets into thorny issues while remaining unscratched. Impressive.'

Russell DiSilvestro, Chair Department of Philosophy, California State University, USA.
