Editorial Reviews


""Dying Right succeeds beautifully in telling the story of the people involved in the death with dignity movements and the events that engulfed them. Events are considered within the broader ethical, religious, and political contexts of the time, and from the viewpoint of current sociological and political theory. Particularly compelling are the authors' analyses of how the two sides attempted to frame the issues to coincide with (differing) prevailing values in the culture (e.g., 'personal autonomy' vs. 'it will be abused') and of each camp's strategies to identify publicly with the moral high ground while painting the opponent as deviant."
-Contemporary Sociology
"The writing is clear and the case that Hillyard and Dombrink assemble is persuasive."
-Virginia Quarterly Review
""Dying Right fills a void in the literature on the 'right to die' movement by providing a trenchant analysis and recounting of the evolution of a popular notion into social reformand legal action. Anyone professionally or personally concerned with the issue of physician-assisted suicide and euthanasia will find this an exceptionally informative work."
-Jonathan D. Moreno, Center for Biomedical Ethics, University of Virginia
""Dying Right is a rich and well-researched account of one aspect of this struggle, the debate over physician-assisted suicide for the terminally-ill...Dying Right offerse insights along the way into such varied concerns as the role of issue framing in politics, the medicalization of American life, the ongoing contest for power between doctors and patients, the politics of deviance, and American rights consciousness."
-The Law and Politics Book Review
"For anyoneseeking to understand an increasingly salient aspect of politics, the politics of death, "Dying Right is an invaluable source."
-The Law and Politics Book Review
