    Cross-Disciplinary Kudos!

    WAPA member Fannie Norwood spoke a while back to a WAPA audience about her research on euthanasia in The Netherlands.  Her book, The Maintenance of Life: Preventing Social Death through Euthanasia Talk and End-of-Life Care - Lessons from the Netherlands, was published in 2009 and has just been reviewed by the Journal of the American Medical Association.

    "The Maintenance of Life will not (and is not meant to) change readers' opinion (con or pro) about euthanasia.  Instead, it is 'for anyone interested in learning more about death in another culture in order to gain some insight into death where you live' (p xxiii).  As such, it presents much food for thought."
