Book News Annotation:
Shapiro (law, University of Southern California) provides teachers, students, and others with a comprehensive survey of bioethics and law. Material includes accounts of litigation, legislation, and administration, background materials from relevant fields, and commentaries on how law addresses the biomedical developments presented. Chapters are in sections on biomedical research law and policy, control of mind and behavior, reproductive choice, the control of genetics, death and dying, and transplantation and implantation. Each section addresses issues involving topics such as human asexual reproduction, genetic screening, biological psychiatry, and standards in bioethics. Section VIII analyzes emerging technologies that will affect concepts of personhood, identity, and responsibility.
