This book brings together a wide cross-section of the author's work in the field of medical law and ethics. Many of the articles have appeared previously in journals, but all are updated. Some are published here for the first time. Professor Kennedy, a former Reith Lecturer and a well-knownscholar and broadcaster, writes not only authoritatively and informatively about the subject, but often in a way that is provocative, controversial, and amusing. It is a collection that will interest the lawyer with medico-legal interests, and the doctor who wants to know more about the rights,duties, and liabilities of his profession, the student of law or medicine, and the layperson who follows developments in this scientifically complex and morally contentious area of law.
Ian Kennedy is at King's College London.

Editorial Reviews

`Written in the first person, the essays have an integrity and honesty lacking in much academic writing. Kennedy's conversational style is engaging and solicitous. For instance, when he writes of Sidaway he is a perceptive and informed narrator explaining concisely and lucidly the issuesinvolved ... his asides enliven and enrich the discussion. Occasionally, there is gracefulness and compassion ... he skilfully and rigorously employs the primary tools of the common law; precedent and analogous reasoning ... These new essays show Kennedy continuing to stimulate and inform afteralmost twenty years of sustained publication. With the other fifteen essays, the paperback charts an original and prodigious output. That courts and bioethicists still wrestle with the dilemmas and issues addressed by Kennedy renders this book an invaluable respository of analysis in the field ofmedical law and ethics.'Medical Law International
