3 Cox, Donald W. Hemlock's Cup: the Struggle for Death with Dignity
0879758082 / 9780879758080; 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 worldwide fame. The work of Derek Humphry, 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 (1991) and Califormnia (1992) initiatives to legalize 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, he examines the connections among AIDS, abortion, and assisted suicide, three major medical issues that are still debated today. 311 pages, including an index and several useful appendices, including a durable power of attorney for healthcare (living will) , and selected bibliography. There is a wealth of information contained in this book. The binding is an attractive blue leather-look cloth. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.

6 Lantos, M. D. , John D. ; Meadow, M. D. , Ph. D. , William L. Neonatal Bioethics: the Moral Challenges of Medical Innovation
080188344X / 9780801883446; Neonatal intensive care has been one of the most morally controversial areas of medicine during the past thirty years. This study examines the interconnected development of four key aspects of neonatal intensive care: Medical advances, ethical analysis, legal scrutiny, and econometric evaluation. The authors assert that a dramatic shift in societal attitudes toward newborns and their medical care was a stimulus for and then a result of developments in the medical care of newborns. They divide their analysis into three eras of neonatal intensive care. The first, characterized by the rapid advance of medical technology from the late 1960s to the Baby Doe case of 1982, established neonatal care as a legitimate specialty of medical care, separate from the rest of pediatrics and medicine. The second era, beginning with the Baby Doe case stimulated efforts to establish a consistent federal standard on neonatal care decisions and raised important moral questions concerning the meaning of "futility" and "inhumane" treatment. In the third era, a consistent set of decision-making criteria and policies were established. Tracing the field's recent history, notable advances, and considerable challenges yet to be faced, the authors present neonatal bioethics as a paradigm of complex conversation among physicians, philosophers, policy makers, judges, and legislators which has led to responsible societal oversight of a controversial medical innovation. Bound in green cloth, 177 pages including notes and an index. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.

9 Ware, J. Anthony; Simons, Michael (edited by) Angiogenesis and Cardiovascular Disease
0195112350 / 9780195112351; Angiogenesis at both the clinical and functional scientific levels has emerged as an important area of study that exemplifies the importance of rapid translation of information learned at the laboratory bench to the bedside. There are compelling reasons to discuss the growth of new blood vessels, in both a clinical and mechanistic context, in a single book. Besides the wealth of information available on the biology of endothelial cells, growth factors, and developing vessels, recent technological developments have allowed the application of these advances to preclinical models of vascular disease, and to patients. This book was written to integrate the current understanding of basic mechanisms in vascular cell and molecular biology with the experimental and clinical implications of these advances. 360 pages including references, an extensive index, and charts, diagrams and drawings with 4 pages of color photographs. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.
