Unplugged: Reclaiming Our Right to Die in America
William H. Colby (au); J. Donald Schumacher (fr)
As America watched the life of the brain-damaged Terri Schiavo come to a sad and slow end, a firestorm of passion, fear, and religious and ethical dilemmas erupted from inside the American psyche, resulting in a contentious debate on how we define life and death at the start of the 21st century.
