"This book is an extremely useful book in the field of applied clinical ethics. A fifth printing certainly validates its usefulness, but may beg the question as well, "Is the fifth edition necessary?" The answer is a resounding "Yes." The authors seriously look at the issues in need of updating from its last printing, such as organizational ethics and the section on conflicts of interest. Even public health issues are covered since the terrorist attack of September 11, 2001." "4 stars" Doody's 20030101From the Back Cover:
