The Bioethics Revolution

From the mapping of the human genome to the distrust of American clinical research, from the cloning of barnyard animals to the prosecution of physicians for helping patients to die, debates surrounding bioethics are ubiquitous. All over the world, bioethical discussion, education, and debate have become the most important interface between theories about how the world should be and the practices that are changing human nature. In a time when health care practices and scientific research conjure a vision of scarce resources, high technology, and vast inequities, bioethics is among the most important and controversial areas of contemporary scholarly research.

"Basic Bioethics", the exciting new interdisciplinary book series from The MIT Press, extends the reach of book-length scholarship in bioethics to a general audience. titles in the "Basic Bioethics" series represent a broad range of approaches to bioethics, all argued in the aggressive and inventive style for which The MIT Press has become known. "Basic Bioethics" comprises carefully crafted, peer-reviewed scholarship. More important, Basic Bioethics represents a fundamental recognition that for bioethics to make a truly global difference in science and ethics, it must reach a diverse international audience and offer real options and challenges to those whose work and lives are touched by the questions debated in bioethics.
