What is IVF? Who is suitable for treatment? How much does it cost? Where do you go for it? What other treatments are available? What are the ethnical implications of infertility treatment? If you need to know the answers to any of these questions then you need to read this book. THE IVF REVOLUTION is a comprehensive, user-friendly guide, from an internationally respected gynaecologist, for all those thinking about, or currently involved in, treatment for infertility. It gives practical information on all techniques that are now available for assisted reproduction together with the success rates of the different treatments and their respective costs, so that you can assess your own chance of success. In addition the book provides an overview on recent scientific developments such as DNA identification of sperm which can allow parents to pre-determine the sex of their baby; and also covers such ethical issues as that of Mandy Alwood and Diane Blood whose hard-won legal battle gave her the right to conceive using the sperm of her dead husband.

Science and technology force us to ask some of the most challenging and unprecedented ethical questions in the world today. These issues encompass what it means to be human, how we relate to others and our world, and how we find meaning in life. How we can find a shared ethics for an interdependent world? In her 2006 CBC Massey Lectures, ethicist and McGill University professor Margaret Somerville tackles some of the most contentious issues of our times, and proposes a brilliant new kind of ethical language and thought to help us navigate them.

Our technological culture has an extremely dynamic character: old ways of reproducing ourselves, managing nature and keeping animals are continually replaced by new ones; norms and values with respect to our bodies, food production, health care and environmental protection are regularly being put up for discussion. This constantly confronts us with new moral problems and dilemmas. In discussion with other approaches this book argues that pragmatism, with its strong emphasis on the interaction between technology and values, gives us both procedural help and stresses the importance of living and cooperating together in tackling these problems and dilemmas. The issues in this book include the interaction of technology and ethics, the status of pragmatism, the concept of practice, and discourse ethics and deliberative democracy. It has an interactive design, with original contributions alternating with critical comments. The book is of interest for students, scholars and policymakers in the fields of bioethics, animal ethics, environmental ethics, pragmatist philosophy and science and technology studies.

Thirty years ago, English jurist Patrick Devlin wrote: "Is it not a pleasant tribute to the medical profession that by and large it has been able to manage its relations with its patients ... without the aid of lawyers and law makers". Medical interventions at the beginnings and the endings of life have rendered that assessment dated if not defeated. This book picks up some of the most important of those developments and reflects on the legal and social consequences of this metamorphosis over the past ten years, and will be of interest to students of law, sociology and ethics who want a considered and critical introduction to, and reflection on, key issues in these pivotal moments of human life.
