Butcher, Alan D.
Artist Frances Gage, born in 1924 in Windsor, experienced both artistic recognition and acute despair in her life, yet she flourished in her work and as part of the contemporary Toronto art scene. A friend of Frances Loring and Florence Wyle, she developed a greater connection with the Group of Seven, working closely with Frederick Varley and producing reliefs of both him and A Y Jackson while working in Tom Thomson's shack. Frances remained focused and positive and became a successful sculptor, creating more than five hundred works of art. Still, even though she achieved the dream she strove toward during all the years of struggle, she discovered that the Dante-like Paradise she had sought and gained was instead the poet's Inferno in disguise. Her correspondence, as referenced in this remarkable biography, bears out this insight in a life often marked by unsatisfying triumph over tragedy. It presents a candid view of one of Canada's most fascinating artists of the twentieth century. 263pp.

Cohen, Andrew
Andrew Cohen writes with candor and passion about his own experience as a spiritual mentor, and the challenge that an uncompromising example presents to a world grown comfortable with compromise and limitation. Provocative and inspiring, this small book explores the liberating potential in the relationship between the student and the true teacher, and speaks out in defense of this time-honored tradition.53pp.

Edited By Kopelman,Loretta M. And De Ville,Kenneth A.
This title offers a detailed discussion of recent supreme court rulings that have had an impact on the contemporary debate in the US and elsewhere over physician-assisted suicide. Two rulings by the US Supreme Court have altered the contemporary debate on physician-assisted suicide: Washington versus Glucksberg (1997) and Vacco versus Quill (1997). In these cases, the Supreme Court ruled that state laws could prohibit assisted suicide and, therefore, physician-assisted suicide. These rulings mark the apex of over two decades of unprecedented litigation regarding end-of-life care and signal the beginning of a new clinical, ethical, and legal debate over the extent of an individual's rights to control the timing, manner, and means of his/her death. The debate over suicide and assisting suicide is ancient and contentious and intertwined with questions about the permissibility of voluntary active euthanasia or mercy killing. Responses to these issues can be divided into those who defend physician-assisted suicide and many of these other activities and those who object. But those who object may do so on principle grounds in that they regard these activities as wrong in all cases, or non-principled, in that they believe there are more prudent, less disruptive or more efficient policies. This book examines these responses and looks at the assumptions underlying them. Several of these authors offer the view that a culture gap exists, deeper and wider than that in the abortion debate.235pp. N.B.Slight label residue to base of d/j spine.
