Abstract:

This book is a must for anyone who wishes to understand the pitfalls of policy-making where euthanasia and physician-assisted suicide are concerned. The book will be most useful in academic forums, and it will appeal to legislatures and judges who take the decisions and make the judgments necessary to protect the fabric of society in the face of technological medicine. In addition, this book is of relevance to medical doctors, ethicists, lawyers working in the field of medical law and ethics, and sociologists who are interested in end-of-life issues and social justice. Euthanasia in the Netherlands: - addresses an issue that is of growing concern in North America and Europe; - offers an interdisciplinary, compelling study in medicine, law, religion and ethics; - covers a wide range of theoretical and practical issues concerning the end of life; - considers the philosophical difficulties inherent in the concepts of medical ethics; - is not confined strictly to the philosophical realm; - is based on interviews conducted in hospitals, research centers and universities in the Netherlands - will contribute to the ongoing debate about the intricate questions of medical ethics; - deals with issues that bring scholars and students, politicians, sociologists, jurist and lawyers together.
