"Although presented as a series of separate essays written by the most knowledgeable medical and legal experts dealing with end-of-life issues, Physician-Assisted Dying: The Case for Palliative Care and Patient Choice is in truth a perfectly realized whole -- one that will reward any careful reader with a rich, detailed, and historically grounded understanding of how we have at times come to grips with, but more often tried to evade, the moral, legal, and ultimately political dilemmas that are posed by one overwhelming question: How can we better assure the ethical and compassionate treatment of those who are approaching the end of their days, and of those closest to them, in ways that fully respect the needs, values, and choices of the individuals most intimately involved?" -- Laurence H. Tribe, Harvard University
