The rapid development of new technology used in obstetrics and neonatology has been accompanied by new moral problems presented by the choices this technology generates. Ethics and Perinatology is a timely examination of the moral problems caused by clinical and research practices inperinatology. 14 major issues are each addressed by a leading clinician whose writing is then critically reviewed by a medical ethicist, a legal theorist, or an economist. Thus each chapter embodies the independent perspectives of international experts from different disciplines. This book offers anew approach to the presentation of ideas in medical ethics concerning obstetrics and perinatology that will benefit all physicians, nurses, philosophers, and medical ethicists, as well as the interested lay reader.
Amnon Goldworth is at Stanford University Center for Biomedical Ethics, Palo Alto, California. William Silverman is at Columbia University.

Editorial Reviews

`This is an immensely satisfying book which meets a pressing need for balanced, in-depth discussion of the many difficult issues confronting those whose work is involved with the unborn, the new-born and their families...It does not come up with simple ansers but it does look deeply at theproblems as well as the progress, and helps us all to work through our own position on difficult questions...the whole book is immensely valuable to all with an interest in ethics and technology at the edges of life.'Dorothy A Whyte Ethics and Medicine 1998 14.2
