Berkeley Symposium Proceedings Published

Springer has published the proceedings of the 2010 Berkeley symposium. This is the eighth and last such book. It is titled Genital Cutting: Protecting Children from Medical, Cultural, and Religious Infringements and is edited by George C. Denniston, Frederick M. Hodges, and Marilyn F. Milos. I am honored to have been able to contribute to all eight books and to be able to lead off the final volume with the paper I presented in Berkeley titled, "Tortured Bodies, Tortured Doctrines: Informed Consent as a Legal Fiction Inapplicable to Male Circumcision." This paper revisits the topic of informed consent that Bob Van Howe, James Dwyer and I wrote about in 2000, but this time I focus on several problems with even applying the informed consent framework to infant male circumcision.  The Springer e-book sells for $149 and the hardcover book sells for $189.

Our latest symposium book is posted below and on the Springer site at
