Twenty-four American specialists provide descriptions of techniques, critiques, and notes on resources and training on a variety of methods used in medical ethics. Individual chapters are devoted to each of 11 methods: philosophy, religion and theology, professional codes, legal methods, casuistry, history, qualitative, ethnographic, quantitative surveys, experimental methods, and economics and decision science. Discussion includes how these methods can relate to one another and how to assess the quality of scholarship in medical ethics in connection with such issues as physician-assisted suicide, euthanasia, and medical genetics. For scholars, teachers, editors and students in all disciplines contributing to the field. c. Book News Inc.

This text, written by members of the Wellcome Institute for the History of Medicine and first published in 1995, is designed to cover the history of western medicine from classical antiquity to 1800. As one guiding thread it takes, as its title suggests, the system of medical ideas that in large part went back to the Greeks of the eighth century BC, and played a major role in the understanding and treatment of health and disease. Its influence spread from the Aegean basin to the rest of the Mediterranean region, to Europe, and then to European settlements overseas. By the nineteenth century, however, this tradition no longer carried the same force or occupied so central a position within medicine. This book charts the influence of this tradition, examining it in its social and historical context. It is essential reading as a synthesis for all students of the history of medicine.
