‘Solomon Benatar and Gillian Brock have put together the broadest engagements with the central ethical challenges posed by the evermore encompassing field of global health. This book is a crucial accompaniment to efforts to describe, define and introduce global health for students at all levels. It also is essential reading for global health practitioners. Justice, goodness, and human rights are advanced by global health practices but also slighted and failed by them. The contributors to Global Health: Ethical Challenges are a remarkably diverse collection of experts from dozens of fields who address the value crises of capitalism, bureaucracy, international organisations, syndemics, post-colonialism, racism, and the environment, showing how they shape global health, global health systems, and indeed the fates and prospects for life in our time. A huge achievement!’ Arthur Kleinman, Professor of Medical Anthropology, Department of Global Health and Social Medicine, Professor of Psychiatry, Harvard Medical School, and Rabb Professor, Department of Anthropology, Harvard University Faculty of Arts and Sciences
‘… highly recommended for upper-level undergraduates, graduates, and professional audiences from all disciplines.’ Diane Martinez, Technical Communication
