Hindus are an important part of the North American diaspora. This clear,
well-written book will be very helpful to any physician caring for Hindu patients.
The first half introduces the reader to the quite different Hindu worldview
and the presuppositions of traditional Hindu medicine. The last half offers
concise presentations of the Hindu ethical approach to issues such as contraception,
sex selection, birth, the Human Genome Project, genetic engineering, cloning,
aging, and death and dying.
