From the Publisher"....C. G. Prado offers a philosophical treatise of the reactions of loved ones (referred to as "survivors") of persons who elect to die due to terminal illness (referred to as "electors").... He explores how the surviving family and friends deal with the ill person's decision to die, particularly with regard to the severed relationships that result. The attention to survivors in this book is unique, and justified, according to Prado, because the survivor role is distinctive.... the book provides a helpful complement to the literature on decision making by the terminally ill, assisted suicide and euthanasia, and the grief process for survivors.... This book has the potential to be an essential reference for clinical ethicists, patients, and their families and friends...."
—Felicia Cohn, University of California, Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews
"....On the whole, this book should interest persons involved in medical ethics and end-of-life care. The style is somewhat scholastic and rigid. Helpful index and extensive bibliography.... Recommended...."
