Good Death : The New American Search to Reshape the End of Life - 97 edition

Good Death : The New American Search to Reshape the End of Life (ISBN10: 0553379879; ISBN13: 9780553379877)
ISBN13: 978-0553379877
ISBN10: 0553379879

Summary: The Good Death is the first full-scale examination of one of today's most complex issues: the profound change in the way Americans think about and confront death. Drawing on more than six years of firsthand research and reporting, noted journalist Marilyn Webb builds her account around intimate portraits of the dying themselves. She explains why some deaths become shockingly difficult--and needlessly painful -- and how the struggles over end-of-life decisions
can pit patient and family against hospitals, doctors, insurance companies, religious groups, and the law. But there is good news as well. Webb describes many extraordinary programs and individuals who are changing the face of dying. An abundant source of comfort and hope, The Good Death shows how the essential elements of humane -- even uplifted -- death are available to all of us, if we know what is possible, where to go for help, and how to prepare.
