Leinhos examines how the legitimacy and intellectual content of academic bioethics are co-produced with its organization in the US. In order to succeed as an academic enterprise, she argues bioethics needs to legitimate its moral authority not just in ivied halls, but within the institutional structures of biomedicine and the state; and needs to develop the intellectual tools and content to grapple with the ethical aspects of biomedicine and biotechnology as professional and commercial operations. She manages the Human Research Protection Office at the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Annotation ©2008 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
