Thomas Anthony Shannon
Paulist Press, Jan 1, 1993 - Medical - 542 pages
Issues in bioethics, medicine, and healthcare continue to plague us - as patients as consumers, as citizens. Here, under one cover, are thirty of the most current and perceptive articles, culled from key medical, ethical, philosophical, legal and theological journals. Dr. Shannon once again offers - to healthcare professionals and students alike - access to this decade's core bioethics questions, a spectrum of viewpoints, and a wealth of insight.
