About this product
- DescriptionAs asymmetric 'wars among the people' replace state-on-state wars in modern armed conflict, the growing role of military medicine and medical techlogy in contemporary war fighting has brought an urgent need to critically reassess the theory and practice of military medical ethics. Military Medical Ethics for the 21st Century is the first full length, broad-based treatment of this important subject. Written by an international team of practitioners and academics, this book provides interdisciplinary insights into the major issues facing military-medical decision makers and critically examines the tensions and dilemmas inherent in the military and medical professions. In this book the authors explore the practice of battlefield bioethics, medical neutrality and treatment of the wounded, enhancement techlogies for war fighters, the potential risks of dual-use biotechlogies, patient rights for active duty personnel, military medical research and military medical ethics education in the 21st Century.
