Cox, Donald W.
"Mercy killing", "assisting a suicide", "planning your own death" and "euthanasia" are once again high-profile issues. Recent popular referendums have sought to legalise doctor-assisted suicide, while best-selling books have been published about how to kill yourself. In short, Americans are searching for more control over their own mortality. "Hemlock's Cup" is the first history of the active euthanasia movement in America, as represented by its most visible proponent, the Hemlock Society. Donald W. Cox traces the growth of the society from its beginnings as a three-person cause to its current world-wide fame.The work of Derek Humphrey, the society's founder, is reviewed and the publicity surrounding Dr Jack Kevorkian and his controversial "suicide machine" is discussed. Cox also addresses the Washington and California initiatives to legalise doctor-assisted suicide and the ethical questions they pose. He reflects on the impact of the Quinlan and Cruzan cases to establish the "right to die" for all Americans and he explores the reasons for the delays in enacting living-will laws in various states. In addition, Cox examines the significant connections among AIDS, abortion, and assisted suicide. 311pp.

Lindberg, Ted
Ted Lindberg captures the development in life and art of one of Canada's finest painters. Over the past forty years Pnina Granirer has been exploring and extending her perception of the world around us with exuberantly colourful and formally innovative paintings and prints. Lindberg analyses in detail Granirer's art from her early years in Romania through her student drawings in Israel to her mature works in Canada. He offers detailed accounts of the major thematic developments: the Childhood Magic Series, the West Coast Suite, the Carved Stones Series, the Trials of Eve Suite, and the Eden Series. Lindberg also reveals how Granirer's recent work successfully challenges the age old nature/culture dichotomy and re-configures the vision of the artist to include Woman in all her many guises. A special section is devoted to her work as a printmaker. The book also provides an extensive bibliography, listing Granirer's artistic activities, her exhibitions, collections and commissions. N.B. Limited Edition of 100 Copies with Signed, Numbered Print. Head and tail of spine and corners of boards slightly rubbed. Bottom edge of D/J very slightly shelf worn. 191pp.
