The volume, analytical in approach and comprehensive in coverage, ought to evoke vital public interest in that it examines technological advancements in the medical field that have legal, social, and ethical implications. The issues, including organ transplant, euthanasia, surrogacy and abortion, sex selection, the concept of consent, clinical trials, designer babies, cosmetic enhancement and confidentiality, are common to all countries but vary in their moral perception due to diverse cultural underpinnings of each country. The author adopts an interdisciplinary approach combining law with medicine to address these issues. This book is also a comparative study with a special focus on Indian case law and jurisdictions from other countries including the US and the UK.
