For decades, the field of bioethics has shaped the way we think about ethical problems in science, technology, and medicine. But its traditional emphasis on individual interests such as doctor-patient relationships, informed consent, and personal autonomy is minimally helpful in confronting the social and political challenges posed by new human biotechnologies such as assisted reproduction, human genetic modification, and DNA forensics. Beyond Bioethics addresses these provocative issues from an emerging standpoint that is attentive to race, gender, class, disability, privacy, and notions of democracy-a "new biopolitics." This authoritative volume provides an overview for those grappling with the profound dilemmas posed by these developments. It brings together the work of cutting-edge thinkers from diverse fields of study and public engagement, all of them committed to this new perspective grounded in social justice and public interest values.

"As an argument for a particular focus in bioethics, with each chapter serving as a case providing an example of this focus, Beyond Bioethics is convincing. . . . covers a lot of theoretical ground, and is clear and enjoyable to read without sacrificing intelligence. It will certainly spark both scholarly discussion and student interest." * Quarterly Review of Biology * "With the rapid development of new biotechnologies like CRISPR, Beyond Bioethics makes a timely call for a novel take on bioethics capable of addressing the significant sociopolitical implications of these technologies. . . . Bridging together thinkers across the humanities and sciences divide, Beyond Bioethics models a progressive, interdisciplinary approach to bioethics that extends beyond a focus on the individual toward a 'new biopolitics' of the global, the collective." * Somatosphere * "A useful contribution. Gives both a name and a direction to a more socially conscious ethical and political framework to the controversial issues posed by developments in genomics." * Metapsychology Online Reviews *
