Of obvious value for those active in rural health care. It may be even more useful, however, for nonrural practitioners, ethicists, and members of ethics committees. Reading the essays in this volume is like acquiring a new set of glasses. It made me better able to perceive differences in how ethics can be considered based on culture, population, geographic challenges, and personal connections... An even bigger service may be the tools it provides to look differently at problems commonly thought to be understood. -- Myles N. Sheehan, SJ, MD * JAMA *
An excellent scholarly examination of what rural people face in the world of health care. * Midwest Book Review *
A welcome addition to this oft-neglected area of ethics. The collection is broad-ranging and well-designed. -- Robert Macauley * Journal of Bioethical Inquiry *
The common thread among the essays is a bioethical perspective. Their common goal is to raise awareness among rural practitioners and other interested parties about the particular challenges that the rural environment presents. * Health Affairs *
