In the Arms of Others: A Cultural History of the Right-to-Die in America
Peter G. Filene (au). When, if ever, is life no longer worth living? When, if ever, is it right to withdraw life-support or hasten death? And who should decide? These questions -- which confront doctors, bioethicists, social workers, the children of aging parents, & sooner or later almost everyone -- now receive increasingly urgent attention in Amer. society. Filene explores this contemporary dilemma by seeing how it fits into Amer. history & culture. Beginning with the 19th-cent. background & the rise of med. tech.,the book moves to the landmark case of Karen Ann Quinlan, who became in the 1970s the macabre protagonist of a melodrama that crystallized the nationís consciousness & produced a legal benchmark.
