This volume of the "Annual Review of Law and Ethics" is primarily devoted to the topic "Bioethics and the Law". It includes the contributions of behavioral scientists, biologists, economists, lawyers, medical ethicists, physicians, philosophers and political scientists from the nations of Austria, Chile, Germany, Israel, Japan, Spain and the United States. Although each volume of the "Annual Review" emphasizes one particular topic, it does not exclude other areas of interest within the general framework of law and ethics. Accordingly, this volume also includes articles generally addressing issues of normative ethics.
