The expanded and revised edition of Bioethics: An Anthology is a definitive one-volume collection of key primary texts for the study of bioethics. * Brings together writings on a broad range of ethical issues relating such matters as reproduction, genetics, life and death, and animal experimentation. * Now includes introductions to each of the sections. * Features new coverage of the latest debates on hot topics such as genetic screening, the use of embryonic human stem cells, and resource allocation between patients. * The selections are independent of any particular approach to bioethics. * Can be used as a source book to complement A Companion to Bioethics (1999).

“This is an outstanding, up-to-date collection which covers all the main issues in bioethics and brings together much of the best philosophical work on them.” "Dan W. Brock, Harvard Medical School"

"A useful tool to gain an overview of important an influential texts and thinking of leading authors and commentators in bioethics." "Human Reproduction and Genetic Ethics"
