Editorial Reviews

Review

"In this engrossing study of debates over physician-assisted suicide, Jones has issued a challenge to liberals. The old idea that liberalism is morally neutral and culturally unbiased will have to be discarded. But in doing so, liberals just may find allies among religious and other voices fighting for equality." —Amy Sullivan, The Washington Monthly


“Examining the legal debates surrounding Oregon's Death with Dignity Act, [Jones] argues that liberal theorists such as Ronald Dworkin, whom he otherwise admires, are wrong to weigh in on the side of physician-assisted suicide. The cause of their error, he argues, is a failure to recognize the cultural biases that help socially determine suicide choices. This failure is connected with a failure to fully articulate the commitment to egalitarianism suggested by Dworkin's own conception of 'equality of resources.'” —SciTech Book News, September 1, 2007


“Focuses on the writings of Ronald Dworkin and John Rawls in a critique of liberal egalitarian philosophers’ support for physician-assisted suicide; argues that liberal philosophers should oppose the practice, at least until access to health care is assured for all.” —The Chronicle of Higher Education
