This textbook is an ambitious and engaging introduction to the more advanced writings on medical law and ethics, primarily designed to allow students to `get under the skin' of the topic and begin to build their critical thinking and analysis skills. Each chapter is structured around key questions and debates that provoke deeper thought and, ultimately, a clearer understanding. The aim of the book is not to present a complete overview of theoretical issues in medical law and ethics, but rather to illustrate the current debates which are currently going on among those working in and shaping the area. The text features summaries of the views of notable experts on key topics and each chapter ends with a list of guided further reading.
A perfect book for students taking a module in medical law, or for those wanting to deepen their knowledge.
