'This book was written by a group of concerned professors from various disciplines in response to Daniel Callahan's Setting Limits: Medical Goals in an Aging Society. The book states that Callahan's ideas amount to 'medical totalitarianism', inverting the Western Tradition concerning the value of life by making death sometimes good and life sometimes evil. According to the book, Callahan's views have in the past been adopted by the American Medical Association. This book represents the wisdom a diverse group of experts who sounded the alarm 19 years ago against what would in the current debate be called death panels.' -- Amazon Reader
