Pressestimmen"A 'natural death, ' unencumbered by medical choices and interventions, is a rarity in our world. It is in this context that the choice posed by Constance Putnam in her new book, Hospice or Hemlock?, takes on a particular poignancy. [Putnam's book is] important reading for those on both sides of the debate who are struggling with the potential compatibility of 'hospice' and 'hemlock.'. . . The outstanding mix of sophisticated, well-researched thought and practical insight should make her book of interest both to scholars and to practitioners in the field of end-of-life care, as well as to laypersons who have struggled with these questions in their own lives."-From the Foreword by Timothy E. Quill, M.D. Professor of Medicine, Psychiatry, and Medical Humanities University of Rochester School of Medicine and Dentistry
