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.

Jensen, Lionel M.
Could it be that the familiar and beloved figure of Confucius was invented by Jesuit priests? In "Manufacturing Confucianism", Lionel M. Jensen reveals this very fact, demonstrating how sixteenth- and seventeenth-century Western missionaries used translations of the ancient ru tradition to invent the presumably historical figure who has since been globally celebrated as philosopher, prophet, statesman, wise man, and saint.Tracing the history of the Jesuits' invention of Confucius and of themselves as native defenders of Confucius' teaching, Jensen reconstructs the cultural consequences of the encounter between the West and China. For the West, a principal outcome of this encounter was the reconciliation of empirical investigation and theology on the eve of the scientific revolution. Jensen also explains how Chinese intellectuals in the early twentieth century fashioned a new cosmopolitan Chinese culture through reliance on the Jesuits' Confucius and Confucianism.Challenging both previous scholarship and widespread belief, Jensen uses European letters and memoirs, Christian histories and catechisms written in Chinese, translations and commentaries on the Sishu, and a Latin summary of Chinese culture known as the Confucius Sinarum Philosophus to argue that the national self-consciousness of Europe and China was bred from a cultural ecumenism wherein both were equal contributors. "Manufacturing Confucianism" will have a major impact on studies of China, comparative literature, post colonialism, and Asian religions. For its insights into the history of modern Chinese nationalism, this path breaking study will also engage readers interested in contemporary Chinese affairs. 444pp. N.B. Previous owners inscription to half title page. Corners slightly creased.
