Summary note:
  • "The American Medical Association enacted its Code of Ethics in 1847, the first such national codification.
  • In this volume, a distinguished group of experts from the fields of medicine, bioethics, and the history of medicine reflect on the development of medical ethics in the United States, using historical analyses as a springboard for discussions of the problems of the present, including what the editors call "a sense of moral crisis precipitated by the shift from a system of fee-for-service medicine to a system of fee-for-system medicine, better known as 'managed care.'""--BOOK JACKET.
