Suicide - The Ultimate Rejection?: A Psycho-social Study
This book looks at suicide in a cross-cultural context showing how it is differently understood in different ethnic groups, reflecting various degrees of stigma. It argues for greater recognition of these key differences between cultures and ethnic groups, and shows how important they can be to our understanding and intervention, as well as considering the practical and moral issues raised by euthanasia.
