Between the dying and the dead : Dr. Jack Kevorkian's life and the battle to legalize euthanasia by Neal Nicol( Book )

11 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 741 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Dr. Jack Kevorkian - the enigmatic and intrepid physician dubbed "Dr. Death"--Has for years declined public interviews about his life and the events that led him to be a vehement advocate of doctor-assisted suicide for terminally ill patients. But here, finally, is his own life story, as told to Neal Nicol and Harry Wylie." "Dr. Kevorkian gained international notoriety in the 1990s for his passionate advocacy of choice for terminal patients, who have increasingly won the right to decide the time, place, and method of their own death in several Western countries. In 1998 he assisted Thomas Youk, a terminally ill patient suffering from Lou Gehrig's disease, with a lethal injection that was broadcast on CBS's 60 Minutes. Immediately thereafter, Kevorkian was arrested, charged with second-degree murder, tried, and sentenced to 10-25 years in Michigan's maximum-security prison system." "Today, Dr. Kevorkian is in his late seventies and in failing health himself. He shares an eight-by-twelve-foot cell with another inmate in the Thumb Correctional Facility at Lapeer, Michigan. The unique story Prisoner Number 284797 shares far exceeds the battle to legalize euthanasia and end human suffering for terminal patients. "Personal choice is really what it is all about. Quality of life, as opposed to maintaining existence" (Kevorkian to Vanity Fair, 1994)."--Jacket
Between the dying the dead : Dr. Jack Kevorkian, assisted suicide machine, and the battle to legalise euthanasia by Neal Nicol( )

Jack Kevorkian is best known for inventing the 'suicide machine' and being an outspoken proponent of the right to die with dignity. He has revolutionised the way the world thinks about euthanasia. Until now his story has never been properly told, but in this fully-authorised biography Kevorkian lifts his self-imposed silence through his closest associates. In addition to his work on pioneering 'living wills' and the assisted suicide machine, he was nominated for a Nobel Prize for his work in pathology, and a Grammy for his music. Fluent in eight languages and with a genius IQ, Kevorkian's personal story far exceeds his battle to legalise euthanasia
