From the reviews:
Pessini, Barchifontaine, and Lolas have succeeded in gathering and superbly focusing a rich exploration of the origin and development of bioethics in Ibero-America. To understand American bioethics in perspective, from now on one will need to read this volume. It is a major cultural resource.-David Solomon, Center for Ethics and Culture, University of Notre Dame
No one interested in Latin-American studies, and surely no one with interest in the global phenomenon of bioethics, can do without this book. This is a splendid and rich portrayal of the birth and maturation of Ibero-American bioethics.-Nicholas Capaldi, Loyola University New Orleans
"This volume ... addresses the topics of the development of bioethics on the territory of Latin America (including the role of Portugal and Spain in it, as these European cultures played a major part in the creation of the Latin American cultures), main features of bioethics, and guidelines for future achievements. ... It also provides the reader with the possibility to get acquainted with the kind of bioethical perspective that differs quite a lot from the dominant Anglophone, North American and European, bioethics." (Robert Doricic, JAHR, Vol. 2 (4), September, 2011)
