9780522849707: Angels of Death: Exploring the Euthanasia Underground

Public discussion of euthanasia and assisted suicide is growing. In Australia as elsewhere the debate is difficult, contentious and confronting, and hampered by the secrecy that necessarily surrounds illegal practice. Most people simply have no way of knowing how, and how often, medically assisted death actually occurs. Roger Magnusson presents, for the first time, detailed first-hand accounts by doctors, nurses, therapists and other health professionals who have been participants in assisted death. All have been intimately involved in caring for people with AIDS, both in Australia and in California. He places these ambivalent, self-incriminating accounts within the broader context of the right-to-die debate and the challenges of palliative care. The frankness of the health workers and the richness of their collected evidence set this book apart. From within a culture of deception they speak knowingly and movingly of the merciful release of a peaceful death, while acknowledging the reality of 'botched attempts', euthanasia without consent, precipitative euthanasia, lack of accountability and professional distance, and many other disturbing issues. Angels of Death provides a window into the 'euthanasia underground'-a secret part of medicine and nursing that few professionals will publicly acknowledge. It brings a sense of urgency and precision to public debate, and equips us all to think more independently about these crucial issues.

Descrizione libro Melbourne University Press, Carlton South, Victoria, 2002. Soft Cover. Condizione libro: Fine. With contributions from Peter H. Ballis and an introduction by Michael Kirby. "An exploration of the hidden world of illicit physician-assisted suicide and euthanasia. Through the frank and often troubling first-hand accounts of health professionals who have been involved in assisted death, it records this secret but real area of medical and nursing practice. Through face-to-face interviews with these "angels of death", Roger S. Magnusson explores the social practices, relationships and networks that constitute "underground" euthanasia. How is assisted death actually practised within health care settings? What are the issues that surround the making of such a momentous decision? How do health care workers justify their attitudes and actions in this area? This volume aims to offer detailed answers to these questions and many others. The doctors, nurses and therapists who were interviewed pseudonymously for this study work in the HIV/AIDS communities in the United States and Australia. Their perspectives and practices, attitudes and feelings, should illuminate the assisted death debate and expose a variety of disturbing issues, including the reality of "botched attempts", euthanasia without consent, and unduly hasty measures to bring about death." (publisher's blurb) xvii, 325 pages. Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. Codice libro della libreria 016078
