<p>More and more people who are terminally ill are choosing assisted suicide. <em>When is it Right to Die?</em> offers a different path with alternatives of hope, compassion, and death with real dignity. Joni Eareckson Tada knows what it means to wrestle with this issue and to wish for a painless solution. For the last 50 years she has been confined to a wheelchair and struggled against her own paralysis. And she sat by the bedside of her dying father, thinking, <em>So much suffering, why not end it all quickly, painlessly? </em></p><p>The terminally ill, the elderly, the disabled, the depressed and suicidal, can all be swept up into this movement of self-deliverance. Skip the suffering. Put a quick end to merciless pain and mental anguish. These are tempting enticements to the hurting. Joni doesn鈥檛 give pat answers. Instead, she gives warm comfort from God and practical help to meet the realities for those facing death.</p><p>聽</p><p><em>When Is It Right to Die</em> tells the stories of families who have wrestled with end-of-life questions and found that death with dignity does not necessarily mean three grams of Phenobarbital in the veins. Behind every right-to-die situation is a family. A family like yours. In her warm, personal way, Joni takes the reader into the lives of families and lets them speak about assisted suicide. What they say is surprising.</p><p>Whether you have a dying family member, facing moral and medical choices, or struggling with a chronic condition that feels overwhelming, this book will help you find practical encouragement and biblical advice to help you make difficult decisions.</p><p>This book is revised and updated to examine the current events, trending issues, and the rising acceptance of assisted suicide in this country.聽聽聽聽聽聽聽聽聽聽</p>

<p>This book provides for an extensive legal analysis of the international drug control system in light of the growing challenges and criticism that this system faces. In the current debate on global drug policy, the central pillars of the international drug control system 鈥?the UN Drug Conventions as well as its institutions 鈥?are portrayed as outdated, suppressive and seen as an obstacle to necessary changes. The book鈥檚 objective is to provide an in-depth and positivist insight into drug control鈥檚 present legal framework and thus provide for a better understanding of the normative assumptions upon which drug control is currently based. This is attained by clarifying the objectives of the international drug control system and the premises by which these objectives are to be achieved. </p><br /><p></p><br /><p>The objective of聽the current聽global framework of international drug control is the limitation of drugs to medical and scientific purposes. The meaning of this objective and its concrete implications for States鈥?parties as well as聽its problems from the perspective of other regimes of international law, most notably international human rights law, are extensively analysed. Additionally, the book focuses on how the international drug control system attempts to reach the objective of confining drugs to medical and scientific purposes, i.e. by setting up a universal system that exercises a rigid control on drug supply. The consequences of this heavy focus on the reduction of drug supply are outlined, and the book concludes by making suggestions on how the international drug control system could be reformed in the near future in order to better meet the existing challenges.</p><br /><p>The analysis occurs from a general international law perspective. It aims to map the international drug control system within a wider context of international law and to understand whether the problems聽that the international drug control system faces are exemplary for the difficulties that institutionalized systems of global scope face in the twenty-first century.</p><br /><p>聽</p>

<b><i>NEW YORK TIMES </i>BESTSELLER 鈥?A <i>NEW YORK TIMES</i> NOTABLE BOOK 鈥⒙?lt;/b><i>America鈥檚 Bitter Pill</i> is Steven Brill鈥檚 acclaimed book on how the Affordable Care Act, or Obamacare, was written, how it is being implemented, and, most important, how it is changing鈥攁nd failing to change鈥攖he rampant abuses in the healthcare industry. It鈥檚 a fly-on-the-wall account of the titanic fight to pass a 961-page law aimed at fixing America鈥檚 largest, most dysfunctional industry. It鈥檚 a penetrating chronicle of how the profiteering that Brill first identified in his trailblazing<i> Time</i> magazine cover story continues, despite Obamacare. And it is the first complete, inside account of how President Obama persevered to push through the law, but then failed to deal with the staff incompetence and turf wars that crippled its implementation. <br /> 聽<br /> But by chance <i>America鈥檚 Bitter Pill</i> ends up being much more鈥攂ecause as Brill was completing this book, he had to undergo urgent open-heart surgery. Thus, this also becomes the story of how one patient who thinks he knows everything about healthcare 鈥減olicy鈥?rethinks it from a hospital gurney鈥攁nd combines that insight with his brilliant reporting. The result: a surprising new vision of how we can fix American healthcare so that it stops draining the bank accounts of our families and our businesses, and the federal treasury.<br /> <b>聽</b><br /> <b>Praise for <i>America鈥檚 Bitter Pill</i></b><br /> <b><i>聽</i></b><br /> 鈥淎 tour de force . . . a comprehensive and suitably furious guide to the political landscape of American healthcare . . . persuasive, shocking.鈥?lt;b>鈥?lt;i>The New York Times</i> </b><br /> 聽<br /> 鈥淎n energetic, picaresque, narrative explanation of much of what has happened in the last seven years of health policy . . .
