Case Analysis in Clinical Ethics is an eclectic review from a team of leading ethicists covering the main methods for analysing ethical problems in modern medicine.

Anneke Lucassen, a clinician, begins by presenting an ethically challenging genetics case drawn from her clinical experience.

It is then analysed from different theoretical points of view.

Each ethicist takes a particular approach, illustrating it in action and giving the reader a basic grounding in its central elements.

Each chapter can be read on its own, but comparison between them gives the reader a sense of how far methodology in medical ethics matters, and how different theoretical starting points can lead to different practical conclusions.

At the end, Anneke Lucassen gives a clinician's response to the various ethical methods described.

Practising clinical ethicists and students on upper level undergraduate and Master's degree courses in medical ethics and applied philosophy will find this invaluable.
