Ethical Problems in Dialysis and Transplantation presents an overview of issues with which nephrologists and decision makers are confronted in their daily practice. The search for a universal system of ethics and theories of justice are addressed. Furthermore the work provides a normative ethical discussion of ways of distributing resources with a view to selection and commercialization. Others chapters discuss a philosophical and religious analysis of stopping treatment and the clinical and ethical aspects of stopping treatment in dialysis. Different views from different countries on the subject of dialysis and transplantation are covered including the views expressed by contributors from India, Africa, Japan, Great Britain and China. The work presents the clinician with a guide to the ethical considerations underlying the treatment of dialysis and renal transplantation patients.

MEDIA REVIEWS
`I intend to use Ethical Problems in Dialysis and Transplantation as a course book for renal fellows and senior medical students in elective courses. There is no reservation to my endorsement of this book as an invaluable constructive tool to aid all who worry about what really happended when Scribner let the healing genie out of the bottle.'
The New England Journal of Medicine

`Dr Kjellstrand and Dr Dossetor have put together an outstanding collection of authors. ... The book is well written, well researched, and is presented in a logical sequence, reflecting the clinical expertise of the editors. ... This book would be an appropriate acquisition for medical libraries, and for the shelves of medical ethicists, students, and those nephrologists and surgeons interested in the bioethics of renal dialysis and renal transplantation.'
Virgil Smirnow in Dialysis & Transplantation, January 1994
