    Euthanasia examined: J Keown: This book contains several articles by renowned scholars in the field. In particular you may wish to look at what John Finnis has written. He is a strong supporter of the doctrine of double effect and convincingly draws a distinction between intended effects and foreseen effects in respect of moral culpability. It considers the main areas of debate about euthanasia, including assisted suicide, passive and active euthanasia. The book then explores the arguments made by both sides of the debate and what is being done to protect and help dying people. Finally, you can find out how euthanasia could affect you and learn more about the issues involved.

      "Of all the ethical issues in medicine, euthanasia is the most important Euthanasia Examined is by far the best guide that I have come across" Raymond Tallis, Times Literary Supplement "An invaluable reference source given the momentum and world-wide prominence of the euthanasia debate, this book should be an essential part of any Pages: “Euthanasia is a topic that taps into deeply personal views of dignity and fear but, mostly, spirituality.” ― Elin Hilderbrand, The Perfect Couple.

    This is the latest addition to John Keown’s library of excellent books to do with euthanasia — Euthanasia Examined (Cambridge, ), Euthanasia, Ethics and Public Policy (Cambridge, ), Debating Euthanasia (Hart, ), and The Law and Ethics of Medicine (Oxford, ).Perhaps because a lot has happened in the 16 years since the first edition, I thought .   The long read: Countries around the world are making it easier to choose the time and manner of your death. But doctors in the world’s euthanasia capital are starting to worry about the consequences.
