Summary
  • An incisive examination of bioethics and American healthcare, and their profound effects on American culture over the last 60 years, from two eminent scholars
  • Americans today pay far more for health care while having among the lowest life expectancies and highest infant mortality of any affluent nation. Gutmann and Moreno explain how bioethics came to dominate the national spotlight, leading and responding to a revolution in doctor-patient relations, a burgeoning world of organ transplants, and new reproductive technologies that benefit millions but create a host of legal and ethical challenges. They address head-on the most fundamental challenges in American health care, while exploring the American paradox of wanting to have it all without paying the price. -- adapted from jacket
Summary
An examination of bioethics in American healthcare throughout the past six decades offers insights into the moral challenges of medical progress in light of escalating costs, shorter life expectancies, and higher infant mortality rates
