Military Medical Ethics Addresses medical ethics within a military context. It explores the subject of military medical ethics and attempts to meld the somewhat disparate disciplines of medical ethics and military ethics.
Explores the ongoing tension between the medical profession and the profession of arms as experienced by the military physician, including an extensive and detailed discussion of the many lessons learned from previous wars. Topics range from discussions of traditional medical ethics, military ethics, and the unique field of military medical ethics, to a discussion of medicine gone awry, as exemplified by the Nazi doctors, the Japanese biomedical experimentation programs during the WWII era, and the radiation experiments conducted in the United States. The authors were selected based on their expertise in their respective academic disciplines. Some are uniformed officers; some are civilian academics. Many support military medicine; a few do not. Combined they provide a lively discussion of the topics covered in these two volumes. Although written for uniformed medical officers, this book is also particularly important for civilian medicine at this time in history.
