Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This collection of essays examines the relationship between pain, death, and the law and addresses the question of how the law constructs pain and death as jurisprudential facts. The empirical focus of these essays enables the reader to delve into both the history and the theoretical complexities of the pain-death-law relationship. The combination of the theoretical and the empirical broadens the contribution this volume will undoubtedly make to debates in which the right to live or die is the core issue at hand.

This volume will be an important read for policy makers and legal practitioners and a valuable text for courses in law, the social sciences, and the humanities.

Austin Sarat is William Nelson Cromwell Professor of Jurisprudence and Political Science, Amherst College.
