Summary
"Bioethics beyond the Headlines is a down-to-earth primer. You will not find convoluted philosophical arguments in this volume. Rather, you will find a sampling of the key concepts and debates in bioethics, including euthanasia, assisted reproduction, cloning and stem cells, neuroscience, access to healthcare, and even research on animals and questions of environmental ethics - areas typically overlooked in general introductions to bioethics."--Jacket
