Medical law and ethics


The authors (both of the U. of Otago, New Zealand) conduct a bioethical investigation of the issues raised by the use of the human body and human body parts in medical and scientific investigations. Their exploration is wide-ranging and moves from medieval studies of anatomy to contemporary organ scandals in the UK, US, and China and issues raised by neuroimaging and body modification.
