From the reviews:
“‘The Handbook aims to provide a geographic and systemic overview of global bioethics.’ They have succeeded in their goal. The purported audience for the Handbook includes bioethicists, health-care providers, health-care educators, individuals who are involved in clinical research, academics in the fields of law, science and technology studies, medicine, associated health-care professionals, religion, and cultural anthropology. … The Handbook is a highly recommended resource.” (Barry R. Masters, Graefe’s Archive for Clinical and Experimental Ophthalmology, 2014)
