The Oxford Handbook of Bioethics is an ambitious effort to bring together established and emerging leaders in the field of bioethics and some of the most controversial issues in contemporary biomedicine. Each of the 30 essays is meant to reflect the particular “take” of its author, and so it is perhaps a mark of success that this reader was sometimes nodding in agreement, sometimes challenged and forced to reevaluate a belief, and sometimes frustrated owing to a lack of sympathy with an author's position or mode of argument.
