Product Description


"It is clear from these essays that the mores of western bioethics are often inadequate or ill-defined to meet the research needs of developing countries; without closer long-term interaction of this kind, leading to mutual understanding between rich and poor countries, it will be difficult to make further progress in this critically important field."--The Lancet

"The writing style is consistently concise, the arguments are well developed, and the authors stay on topic. . . . Though this book is demanding, I recommend reading it in its entirety if possible. Each author has a unique approach to the problem of exploitation in research in the developing world, and the reader needs to take in all aspects of this nuanced problem in order to understand it."--Carmen Paradis, New England Journal of Medicine

"Editors Hawkins and Emanuel, along with notable philosophers and bioethicists serving as contributors, tackle theoretical and practical issues relating to the ethics of clinical research carried out in the developing world. . . . The quality of the essays and the timeliness of the issues might make it suitable even for some general readers, especially those with an interest in issues relating to social justice."--M.W. Sontag, Choice

"The essays in this volume are uniformly strong, and those with an interest in the topic will profit from reading it cover to cover. On the whole, the book exhibits a firm command of the facts that pertain to international clinical research and an unusually high level of theoretical sophistication."--Lynn A. Jansen, IRB: Ethics and Human Research

From the Back Cover

"This is an outstanding contribution to the growing literature on the ethics of research with human subjects, and a fine example of what bioethics can offer at its best. Anyone with a serious interest in these issues will need to read this book from start to finish."--Daniel Wikler, Harvard School of Public Health

"This book contributes significantly to the literature on exploitation in clinical research conducted in the developing world."--Patricia Marshall, Case Western Reserve University

Could be an interesting book, but I primarily got it for a philosophy class. If you have time to read, not a bad book to pick up.
