Editorial Reviews

`All in all, this is a volume that is indispensable for any academic library worthy of the name. ...To attempt to reflect upon these issues without the historical background and argumentation found in this brief volume would be to put oneself at a great disadvantage. On that basis I recommend it wholeheartedly.' Ethics, January 1992 `The volume ... is of great value in addressing the historical issues, and one can earnestly hope that it will be widely used to enhance the sophistication and historical sensitivity of contemporary discussions of the ethics of suicide and euthanasia.' ESPMH-Newsletter, 9, 1990
