More About Suicide in America by Herbert Hendin
 
 
 
Overview
Herbert Hendin's authoritative book addresses the often overlooked psychosocial aspects of suicide--for example, the dramatic increase in suicide among children and adolescents in the United States, due almost solely to the wider availability of guns. He argues that suicide must be (and often is not) discussed in a broad policy context that considers treatment for depression, pain control, and end-of-life options such as hospice care. In this new and expanded edition, now available in paperback, he evaluates current issues in the right-to-die movement, and in a comprehensive new chapter he presents a powerful--and unsettling--portrait of euthanasia and assisted suicide in the Netherlands.
