Dying With Dignity: Understanding Euthanasia
Humphry1s previous book, the bestseller 3Final Exit: The Practicalities of Self-Deliverance and Assisted Suicide for the Dying2, brought the right to die to the moral and political forefront. This book puts the somewhat confusing ethics and legality of the right to die in perspective and serves as an important companion volume to Final Exit. Humphry, founder of the Nat. Hemlock Soc., helps readers work their way through the labyrinth of complex issues which comprise the subject. He also discusses the effect that major mercy killing cases have had -- involving individuals like Roswell Gilbert, Dr. Peter Rosier, Nancy Cruzan, and Karen Ann Quinlan -- and the lessons these cases have taught.
