spans an impressive range of important ethical issues in paediatric research and provides a multitude of thought-provoking arguments...This book should be read by anyone interested in or involved with research with children. * Annette Schulz-Baldes, Medicine, Healthcare and Philosophy *
[this] book challenges everyone involved in research with children to consider whether current policies and practices provide them with adequate protection, whether additional safeguards are needed, and whether some barriers to enrolling children in medical research should be removed. * Karen J. Maschke, The New England Journal of Medicine *
If the changes Ross proposes do come to pass, the book will still be of value in future years as an example of how an active researcher in the field has developed a body of work to make a strong statement for change. * Kathryn Weise, Ethics and Human Research *
Ross challenges the ethics of greater acceptable research risk for children with acute or chronic illness, critiques current policies on parental consent and child assent, discusses the debate regarding subject payment in pediatric research and examines the meaning of "prospect of direct benefit"...Ross's work prompts discussion of the reasons why parents agree or refuse to enroll their children in medical research, how they understand the potential for benefit or harm and how they balance risks against potential benefits. * Emily E. Anderson, American Medical Association Journal of Ethics *
The essays presented in this book...illustrate the breadth of Ross's research interests. Her work addresses several pressing issues relating to the ethical challenges of pediatric research and lays the ground for further discussions on and interpretation of these issues. * Christopher Church, Perspectives in Biology and Medicine *
an excellent overview over problems in paediatric research and the ethical and legal issues to be addressed. * M. Brochhausen, Journal of Comparative Human Biology *
This book is a systematic critical exploration of the development of policy within the United States in respect of the involvement of children in medical research ... Throughout the book, Ross makes recommendations for amending rules or adding new ones. These are always judicious and thoughtful ... anyone seeking a survey of American regulatory practice on pediatric research will find a comprehensive, extensively documented one in her book. * David Archard, Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews *
