Euthanasia, already a very hot topic, is getting even hotter in the UK and across Europe more generally. US law on these matters is also in flux.

There are a lot of books out there on euthanasia, but one of the best is Nigel Biggar’s Aiming to Kill.  Unfortunately, if you were looking to get it for yourself or one of your courses, you might have noticed that Pilgrim Press is no longer marketing the book in the United States.  This is a shame.  However, it is still available in the UK, and is available through the UK’s Amazon site here:

The book, among other things, is an excellent study in how choice for euthanasia functions in a Western culture obsessed with hyper-autonomy, production of capital, and the ‘new.’  I highly recommend it.
