Dr Austen Garwood-Gowers is a reader in health law and ethics at Nottingham Trent University. He is author of over 60 publications in this field, having been a dedicated teacher and scholar since the early 1990s. His more recent work has brought a new understanding of fields like transplantation and medical research, showing that they are not just interconnected but also elements of a broader phenomenon of medical means being employed to make use of human beings. He breaks more new ground in this book by subjecting this broader phenomenon of medical use of human beings to its first ever systematic critique.
