Biomedical Ethics is a brief philosophical introduction to the most important ethical questions and arguments in six areas of biomedicine: the patient-doctor relationship; medical research on humans; reproductive rights and technologies; genetics; medical decisions at the end of life; and the allocation of scarce medical resources. The topics cover both perennial ethical issues in medicine, such as doctors' duties to patients, and recent and emerging ethical issues in scientific innovation, such as gene therapy and cloning. The scope of the book captures the historical, contemporary, and future-oriented flavor of these areas in a concise and accessible way, and is ideal for courses in contemporary moral problems, introduction to ethics, and introduction to bioethics.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"As an introduction to the controversies and possible solutions in the field of Biomedical Ethics, this text is first rate. ... The author carefully weaves a path through the debates and their presuppositions in order to reveal the foundations for choices that others have made or are making in
contemporary society and theory. Glannon attempts to include all major current issues in this field and does a remarkable job."--Irene E. Harvey, Pennsylvania State University
"Glannon's clear and lively use of contemporary cases and policies in biomedical ethics will appeal to health care practitioners as well as to bioethicists. Most importantly, it will capture the interest of students who are routinely confronted with biomedical issues in their everyday personal and
professional lives. Glannon will help readers set their moral compass straight enough to navigate the sometimes choppy waters of health care."--Rosemarie Tong, University of North Carolina, Charlotte
"A well-written and informative introduction to the topic of biomedical ethics. The author is familiar not only with the philosophical literature, but is also knowledgeable about the practice of medicine as it occurs today. A refreshing change from many of the current texts used in philosophy
classes."--Scott Wilson, Wright State University
