MEDIA REVIEWS
"The Euthanasia/Assisted Suicide Debate is a thorough yet concise review of the history and development of medical euthanasia and assisted suicide. . . . Part of Greenwood's Historical Guides to Controversial Issues in America series, this offers complete coverage of every aspect of the euthanasia debate and would be a great addition to public, high school, and undergraduate libraries. This book removes the typical pro-con approach taken with controversial topics and simply provides information-leaving readers to arrive at their own conclusions, making it an invaluable resource for students." - Booklist
"This book provides a cogent and systematic analysis of the issue. Arguments against euthanasia as well as those supporting it are well presented here." - ARBA
