Overview

This book uncovers 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, the book records for the first time 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.

Angels of Death breaks new ground in documenting the existence of a euthanasia underground in Australia and the United States. The stories told to Roger Magnusson are sometimes heart-breaking,and sometimes horrifying,but his findings are indispensable reading for everyone debating the legalization of euthanasia,no matter what side they take.
