Margaret Otlowski investigates the complex and controversial issue of active voluntary euthanasia. She critically examines the criminal law prohibition of medically administered active voluntary euthanasia in common law jurisdictions, and carefully looks at the situation as handled in practice. The evidence of patient demands for active euthanasia and the willingness of some doctors to respond to patients' requests is explored, and an argument for reform of the law is made with reference to the position in the Netherlands (where active voluntary euthanasia is now openly practiced).

"...for anyone with a serious interest in voluntary euthanasia, including students of law and medical ethics, it will be invaluable...the style is lucid and jargon-free...be assured that this is the best reference book on voluntary euthanasia since Derek Humphry's "The Right to Die" (1986). Your local library should have (or be asked to get) a copy."
