This is an insider's account of the regulation of the medical profession in Australia and key issues in medical ethics and professional conduct that continue to bedevil medical practice. As memoir, the story traces the unusual development of an accidental ethicist whose career was strongly influenced by serendipity. As social history, it traces changes in medical regulation that have led to an unsatisfactory national registration scheme. It identifies matters deserving closer attention including the influence of the pharmaceutical industry, the harm resulting from misconduct in medical research and from sexual misconduct, and the need for a no-fault compensation scheme for medical injury.

Memoir Ethics: Good Lives and the Virtues is a philosophical study of moral themes in memoirs. It explores how memoirists present and defend perspectives on good lives. Particular attention is paid to the interplay of the virtues, including their interplay with additional (nonmoral) types of values in good lives. More generally, it explores the relevance of memoir to moral philosophy and, in turn, how moral philosophy enters into elucidating and critiquing memoirs.

In this collection of deliberately fragmented essays, a talented documentary filmmaker points the lens at herself and explores a succession of personal tragedies. Told from unusual perspectives and in highly figurative language, the essays draw on the Southern Gothic tradition of Flannery O'Connor and feature dark humor, flawed people, disastrous events, and moments of spiritual grace. Taken together they become a meditation on subjects such as death, work, family responsibilities, and raising a child.

Each family has its secrets, ones that shape family communication and relationships in a way generally unknown to the outsider and often the family itself. Autoethnographers, students of these relationships, confront many silences in their attempts to understand these social worlds. Now issued as a Routledge Education Classic Edition, Accidental Ethnography delves into this shadowy world of pain and loss in the hopes of finding productive, ethical avenues for transforming the secret lives of families into powerful narratives of hope. It merges autoethnographic method with the therapeutic power of storytelling to heal family wounds. A new preface text by the author reflects on the changes in the field of qualitative research and on his own research journey since the publication of the original edition.
