              Stem Cell Tourism and the Political Economy of Hope (Hardback, 1st ed. 2017)

              This book provides a unique and innovative perspective on the controversial phenomenon of 'stem cell tourism'. A growing number of patients are embarking on stem cell treatments that are clinically unproven and yet available in clinics and hospitals around the world. The authors ...offer a cutting-edge multi-dimensional perspective on this complex and rapidly changing phenomenon, including an analysis of the experiences of those who have undertaken or have contemplated undertaking a stem cell treatment, as well as examination of the views of those who undertake research or advise on or provide stem cell treatments. Developing the concept of 'the political economy of hope', and referencing case studies of the stem cell treatment market in China, Germany, and Australia, this book argues for a reframing of 'stem cell tourism' to understand why patients and families pursue these treatments and whether authorities' concerns are justified and whether their responses are appropriate and proportionate to the alleged risks.
