Euthanasia - Choice and Death examines the key philosophical arguments that have underpinned thinking and practice up till now: The centrality of choice to our notion of the human being- The challenge of changes to our concept of death in the face of medical, scientific and technological advances. Gail Tulloch develops a conception of dignity that does not depend on religious assumptions and can promote a broad ethical consensus in a liberal democracy. Examination of landmark cases and the approaches adopted by key countries - the USA, the UK, the Netherlands, and Australia - ground the book.
