This fact that this book was first published 30 years ago and is now in its 9th edition is testament to its importance and success in providing students with a framework for exploring the field of medical ethics and law... This new edition of the book continues to evolve to reflect changes in ethical opinion as well as to encompass new case material, judicial decisions and statutory instruments... For students, both undergraduate and postgraduate, this book should be essential reading... For the rest of us with a more general interest in bioethics and the law this book provides a valuable source of information and reference which should be accessible on every library shelf.
