The Least Worst Death: Essays in Bioethics on the End of Life, (Oxford University Press, 1994).

This book, written by Margaret P. Battin, one of the foremost experts on issues involving death and dying, offers insight into the controversial and often difficult topics of withdrawing and withholding care, euthanasia, and suicide. An extensive introduction identifies the principal ethical issues, and the book explores such dilemmas as rationing health care for the elderly, whether there is a “duty to die,” counseling in rational suicide, the risks of abuse with active euthanasia, religious views about suicide, whether suicide can be understood as a fundamental human right, and others.
