This book both presents a succinct history of medical ethics and discusses a wide range of important ethical dilemmas in the provision of modern health care. A synopsis is provided of ethics through the ages and the role of ethics in the evolution of medicine. Principles and sources of medical ethics, as well as different religious and secular perspectives, are explained. Ethical concerns in relation to a variety of specific issues are then examined. These issues include, for example, human experimentation, stem cell research, assisted reproductive technologies, termination of pregnancy, rationing of health care, euthanasia, and quality of life issues. The author's many years of practicing medicine in different cultures and countries and his passion for theology works, philosophy, literature, poetry, history, and anthropology have informed and enriched the contents of this stimulating book.

MEDIA REVIEWS

From the reviews:

"This is a basic, yet highly organized, history of medical ethics that pays special attention to Islamic ethics and to contemporary ethical concerns and dilemmas. ... This book is suitable for healthcare professionals and students interested in a broader view of medical ethics that encompasses Islamic ethics. It will be especially useful for physicians living in the Middle East and the Indian subcontinent." (Lauren L. Baker, Doody's Book Reviews, October, 2014)

"Published by Springer this 320-page Book will be extremely useful for medical specialists, all healthcare professionals including medical students, nurses, paramedics and readers interested in philosophical, theological, secular and social issues. Physicians in Middle East and Indian sub-continent will find it of special interest though many healthcare professionals in Europe and USA will also find it quite informative and interesting to read." (Pulse International, pulsepakistan.com, March, 2014)
