Summary
"Despite increasing media visibility and growing public support for euthanasia in the United States, the right to die movement has not, until now, received systematic sociological attention. In Come Lovely and Soothing Death, Fox, Kamakahi, and Capek trace the emergence from the 1930s, the evolution, and the contemporary activities of the movement, and explore the sociocultural circumstances that produce scenarios where individuals face criminal sanctions for engaging in active euthanasia ("assisted suicide")." "Come Lovely and Soothing Death is a valuable resource for scholars and students of sociology and social policy, and for anyone interested in the right to die, physician assisted suicide, or social movements."--Jacket
