This book presents an atheistic case against the legalization of assisted suicide. Critical of both sides of the argument, it questions the assumptions behind the discussion. Yuill shows that our attitudes towards suicide - not euthanasia - are most important to our attitudes towards assisted suicide.
Kevin Yuill lectures in History at the University of Sunderland, UK, specializing in the intellectual history of the twentieth century. He has published articles on assisted suicide in the Spectator, The Tablet and numerous other places. He is the author of Richard Nixon and the Rise of Affirmative Action.
