In the Arms of Others
A Cultural History of the Right-to-die in AmericaUnknown - 1998
When, if ever, is life no longer worth living? When, if ever, is it right to withdraw life-support or hasten death? And who should decide? These questions--that confront physicians, bioethicists, social workers, the children of aging parents, and sooner or later almost everyone--now receive increasingly urgent attention in American society. Peter Filene's In the Arms of Others is the first book to set this dilemma into broad historical and cultural context.
