Every year, in the United States and the third world combined, 13.3 million boys and 2 million girls are circumcised. Whether because of perceived medical, cultural, or religious necessity, most of these parents feel they have no alternative but to allow their children to undergo this surgery. Sparking intense debate, the circumcision of children is a highly controversial and complex phenomenon that touches a variety of sociological areas, such as religious beliefs, identity issues, medical conceptualizations, fear, and superstition. The contributors to this volume comprise an international panel of experts in the fields of medicine, psychology, law, ethics, sociology, anthropology, history, theology, and politics. In 18 chapters they discuss the history of circumcision; document the physical and psychological consequences of circumcision; present the latest anatomical discoveries about the male prepuce; analyze the role of circumcision in various traditions; reveal the medical industry's investment in the practice; describe current legislative efforts to protect children from circumcision; and outline effective, culturally sensitive methods that are being implemented today to safeguard the human rights of at-risk children. For its insights into this troubling aspect of culture, Understanding Circumcision: A Multi-Disciplinary Approach to a Multi-Dimensional Problem is a critically important contribution to the growing body of literature on this subject.

Surgery inevitably inflicts some harm on the body. At the very least, it damages the tissue that is cut. These harms are often clearly outweighed by the overall benefits to the patient. But what if the benefits of surgery do not outweigh the harms? Cutting to the Core examines a range of controversial surgeries including infant circumcision, female genital cutting, the separation of conjoined twins, surgical sex assignment and reassignment, and limb and face transplantation. When, if ever, do the benefits of these surgeries outweigh their costs? Should a surgeon perform dangerous procedures that are not clearly of benefit, even if the patient consents to them? Recognized scholars in medical ethics, law, health policy, and philosophy consider the ethics of these contested surgeries in this groundbreaking collection. Book jacket.
