Life and Death in Healthcare Ethics: A Short Introduction: H Watt. Routledge, 2000, pound7.99, vii + 97pp. ISBN 0-415-21574- [Book Review]

Journal of Medical Ethics 29 (2):122-122 (2003)
There is currently a dearth of bioethical literature presenting what might be called a more traditional approach to medicine and health care. Life and Death in Healthcare Ethics promises a reasoned and clear alternative. It considers ethical concerns raised by reproduction and death and dying. The issues considered include euthanasia and withdrawal of treatment, the persistent vegetative state, abortion, cloning and in vitro fertilization. Given its clarity and simplicity the book is likely to be read eagerly by students from a range of different disciplines. For those who want a basic text to introduce them to life and death issues in bioethics, this is a most welcome contribution.
