Synopsis: A collection of the author's essays on death and dying, which specifically explores the dilemmas raised by contemporary medicine, such as the withdrawal of medical care, euthanasia and suicide. The author also surveys the current political and social ferment over the right-to-die movement.
Margaret Pabst Battin is one of the most intelligent of writers on medical ethics, and this collection of her essays proves a provocative pleasure to read. (Studies in Christian Ethics)
Margaret Pabst Battin is singularly placed to write on euthanasia ... Battin is not only a good philosopher, she is a practical philosopher. She adopts a problem-oriented approach to bioethics, selecting a specific issue and always attempting to provide circumspect and reasoned solutions ... This book says much that is significant, and there is much more to praise than to criticise. It is a fine example of scholarship, a rich resource of historical and contemporary examples, and US case law. For the second time in a decade and a half, contemporary bioethics owes a debt to Margaret Pabst Battin. (Journal of Medical Ethics)
