Health Law's Kaleidoscope
Ashgate Publishing, March 2008, Pages: 176
Within contemporary society, the themes of globalisation, health and regulation interlock in complex patterns, changing in response to the mix of cultural differences, regulatory preferences and available resources. To turn the kaleidoscope and to change the mix, is to change the pattern. This book is about those patterns as they arise in the contemporary legal, health and ethical context, exploring the transformations and challenges brought by technological change and the regulatory options in the contemporary global village.

'Dr Bennett offers a careful picture of the ‘kaleidoscope’ of complex and shifting norms which make up contemporary health law. Her breadth of vision and depth of critical insight will make this book required reading for anyone with an interest in how health care law must adapt in the face of rapidly developing scientific knowledge and the pressures and possibilities of globalisation.'
