Book News
With the success of his 2002 Culture of Death, Smith revives an earlier volume (originally published in 1997) opposing deliberate self-chosen and medically-assisted death. His topics include death fundamentalism, creating a caste of disposable people, inventing the right to die, euthanasia as an enemy of the disabled, and the choice between hemlock and hospice.
