Review:

From the reviews:

“The work of a key figure in the history of medical ethics, Michael Ryan, is the focus of this very important book. It provides critical commentary and historical analysis as well as some of Ryan’s important texts. ... This is appropriate for scholars and students in medical ethics and bioethics, philosophy of medicine, and history of medicine. This authoritative volume will advance scholarship. ... This is an excellent book and a significant contribution to the field.” (Ana Smith Iltis, Doody’s Review Service, January, 2010)

“This book was produced to fill the 19th century gap in the history of medical ethics ... . One of the most interesting parts of the book for current students of medical ethics is a short debate Brody sets up with another giant of the field ... . the rich historical treatment of medical ethics lived and practiced by Michael Ryan which has been given to us in a very readable form by Howard Brody and his capable collaborators in this excellent book.” (Jack T. Hanford, Ethics Medicine, Vol. 28 (1), 2012)
