Rezension:

"For decades Professor Smith has been at the vanguard of research into the law as it concerns end-of-life decision-making. In this book he once again he jumps into the breach, reformulating the debate and setting out a way forward that will have a lasting impact on the field for years to come." - Cameron Stewart, Pro-Dean and Professor of Health, Law and Ethics, The University of Sydney, Australia

"A detailed analysis of end-of-life treatment, this book offers an important contribution to an area of academic, political, ethical and religious concern. Palliative Care and End-of-Life Decisions covers a broad range of issues, including the nature of pain and of pain management, the concept of medical futility, the doctrine of double effect, the regulation of physician-assisted death, and an analysis of the nature of a 'good death'. Although dealing with a controversial issue, Smith does so with analytical depth and sophistication, while making an impassioned case for reform." - Jonathan Herring, Fellow in Law, Exeter College; Professor of Law, Director of Undergraduate Studies, University of Oxford, UK
