This book provides a comprehensive and contemporary examination of the right-to-die issues facing society now that vast improvements in public health care and medicine have resulted in people not only living longer but taking much longer to die-often in great pain and suffering.


* Provides readers a clear picture of the complexity of the right-to-die controversy as it has emerged in the courts and in the political branches of state and federal governments

* Presents perspectives written by advocates for and against the right to die that give personal insight into the reasons for their positions

* Supplies a selection of primary source documents that represent viewpoints from both sides of the right-to-die controversy

* Includes a fully annotated chapter that provides readers with secondary resources such as books, journal articles, and medical reports with which to explore the issue further

MEDIA REVIEWS
"This high-quality work clearly addresses a challenging, perennial topic for paper assignments in a variety of fields of study and is thus well suited to undergraduate library collections, whether shelved in reference collections of guidebooks supporting research and writing or in the circulating stacks. Summing Up: Highly recommended. High school through undergraduate students; general readers." - Choice
"This well-written, engaging volume presents the debate evenhandedly, discussing both the belief that life should be preserved at all costs and the view that when pain becomes too overwhelming, people should be allowed to die. . . . This readable handbook will serve students well and is also suitable for the general reader." - Booklist
