Booknews

In light of the ongoing controversy, Keown (law and ethics of medicine, U. of Cambridge) investigates the fear that voluntary active euthanasia and active physician-assisted suicide, if legalized, would not remain voluntary for very long, and that patients would have their lives terminated even if they did not wish and were not suffering. He draws on the views of specialists in the US, Canada, and Britain. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
