Book description

The Great Human Dignity Heist is a collection of prickly, sceptical comments on euthanasia, abortion, IVF, stem-cell research, torture, and other 21st-century bioethical quandaries. After reading this sparkling anthology you’ll never again genuflect before the humbug of pretentious academics.

These cogent essays are written in a persuasive and easily understandable manner, preparing readers to become active participants in society’s most important public policy debates and, in the process, more engaged in decision making about their own medical care. Highly recommended.

– Wesley J. Smith, author of Culture of Death: The Age of “Do Harm” Medicine and Forced Exit: Euthanasia, Assisted Suicide, and the New Duty to Die.

As an academic British bioethicist, I am not the most obvious cheerleader for this book by a forthright Aussie journalist who considers my profession to be trashing civilisation. However, I think he has a point – and makes it with such humour, candour and journalistic flair that it has lured even me from my ivory tower to say so.

– Trevor Stammers, editor of The New Bioethics

The Great Human Dignity Heist is a full-frontal attack on mainstream bioethics. Michael Cook’s well-written polemics are often infuriating, typically wrong, but also a challenging read worth your time.

– Udo Schuklenk, joint editor-in-chief of Bioethics and Developing World Bioethics

About the author

Michael Cook is the editor of BioEdge, a newsletter about bioethics, and MercatorNet, an online magazine with a focus on human dignity. He also writes a bioethics column for Australasian Science. He is based in Sydney.
