For nearly 30 years, Gregory E. Pence's name has appeared in the by-lines of headlining newspaper articles in bioethics. Pence, one of America's pioneering bioethicists, has never been afraid to go his own way or stir up a little controversy. Brave New Bioethics gathers 35 of his most influential and groundbreaking op-ed pieces and essays into one broad-ranging volume on issues such as cloning, AIDS, dignified death, and test-tube babies. These distinctive, lively commentaries have graced the pages of such publications as The Wall Street Journal, Newsweek, The New York Times, The Los Angeles Times, and The Philadelphia Inquirer.

Although the 34 previously published essays in this collection reveal little that is either brave or new, Pence (Designer Food) revels in challenging media stereotypes of bioethics as well as conservative philosophical positions on cloning and assisted reproduction.
