Reviews

"With an unusually strong introduction, Iffland and Gonzalez have organized a series of papers that affirm the perduring centrality of care in human life both for its survival and its flourishing. They distinguish between two forms of care 'caring about' and 'caring for' others. Within that framework, they examine the complexities of caregiving today, as undertaken reflexively in the setting of family and friends and increasingly under the auspices of external caregivers, both professional and non-professional." - William F. May, Emeritus Professor of Ethics, Southern Methodist University, USA; Former member of the Clinton Task Force on Health Care Reform and the President's Council on Bioethics

"Bringing together philosophical and sociological perspectives, this timely volume sets out to examine the very nature of care, both what it means to care for, care about and to receive care. Craig Iffland and Ana Marta Gonzalez's collection of essays strive to expose the moral underbelly and make transparent the invisible emotional heart in the giving and receiving of care. It does so successfully, pinning down the purpose of care and questioning how this translates in actual care environments whether that be in the domestic sphere or intensive care units in public or privately funded hospitals." - Catherine Theodosius, Senior Lecturer, School of Health Sciences, Brighton University, UK

"Care Professions and Globalization provides a robust examination of the nature, meaning, and ethics of care, lay and professional, across a range of settings and situations - medical, domestic, end-of-life. It meets a critical need." - Joseph E. Davis, Research Associate Professor of Sociology, University of Virginia, USA
