Physicians at War Summary

Physicians at War: The Dual-Loyalties Challenge by Fritz Allhoff

Recently, there has been a tremendous interest in the ethical issues that confront physicians in times of war, as well as some of the uses of physicians during wars. This book presents a theoretical apparatus which underpins those debates, namely by casting physicians as being faced with dual-loyalties during times of war. While this theoretical apparatus has been developed in other contexts, it has not been specifically brought to bear on the ethical conflicts that wars bring.

Physicians at War Reviews

From the reviews:

Physicians at war: The dual-loyalties challenge is a collection of essays which provide philosophical, political, and legal perspectives on many of the conflicting obligations which physicians may face during times of armed conflict. ... valuable for anyone who is concerned about the role and obligations of physicians in national security/defense issues. ... this book has important implications for other areas of medicine were physicians find themselves called upon to use their medical skills and knowledge in service of the state. (Jason Gatliff, Journal of Bioethical Inquiry, Vol. 6, 2009)
