The concept of community is increasingly the focus of political
argument in Britain, the United States and elsewhere around the
world. The sense people have of belonging to coummunities provides
a powerful motivation which continues to affecct the political and
social face of the world. Recently, debate about the relationship
between individuals and their communities has become central to the
making of both, American and European social policy. In the United
Kingdom this is especially apparent in the area of health care,
where ideas of community have informed recent legislation
concerning community care, community health trusts and the Children
Act among others. This volume explores the focus of interest in
community and the emerging theoretical oppostion between
communitarianism and liberalism, as well as the practical,
theoretical and ethical issues relating to community in the health
care professions, including a discussion of the health service as
Civil Association, an analysis of liberal and communitarian views
on the allocaiton of health care resources, an exploration of the
use of genetic information and an examination of health care
decision making for incapacitated elderly patients.
