This is an excellent book because it documents the various cases that produced the court decisions that is affecting biomedical ethics today in the United States.

Written in an easy non academic style, it nevertheless give a background to the who, why and what to the various thinking on death and dying, beginnings of human life, ethical theory, research, and individual versus public good.
