The SAGE Handbook of Health Care Ethics is an influential collection of work by leading scholars on the fundamental and emerging themes which define health care ethics. Combining international and interdisciplinary perspectives, the Handbook provides a cutting-edge account of debates in five key areas:

- health care ethics in an era of globalization

- beginning and end-of-life

- vulnerable populations

- research ethics and technologies

- public health and human rights.

This authoritative Handbook brings together experts with backgrounds in philosophy, sociology, law, public policy and the health professions and reflects the increasing impact of globalisation and the dynamic advances in the fields of bioscience and genetics, which keep ethics at the centre of debates about the future direction of healthcare. It is an invaluable resource for all students, practitioners, academics and researchers investigating ethical issues in relation to healthcare.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'The SAGE Handbook of Health Care Ethics is a timely and important work. Too often health care issues are treated as if they are separate issues, disconnected from other areas of global justice theory and practice and divorced from the pressures of global governance and markets. This book is a welcome attempt to redress this gap.'

Heather Widdows, Professor of Global Ethics, Philosophy Department, University of Birmingham

'This Handbook offers comprehensive coverage of the changing field of health care ethics. Providing both an international and real-life perspective on the contexts in which ethical debates occur, it will be invaluable to those interested in the field.'

Dr Mairi Levitt, Senior Lecturer, Lancaster University
