Thirty years ago, English jurist Patrick Devlin wrote: "Is it not a pleasant tribute to the medical profession that by and large it has been able to manage its relations with its patients ... without the aid of lawyers and law makers". Medical interventions at the beginnings and the endings of life have rendered that assessment dated if not defeated. This book picks up some of the most important of those developments and reflects on the legal and social consequences of this metamorphosis over the past ten years, and will be of interest to students of law, sociology and ethics who want a considered and critical introduction to, and reflection on, key issues in these pivotal moments of human life.

This book is a successor to J Griffiths, A Bood and H Weyers, Euthanasia and Law in the Netherlands (Amsterdam University Press 1998) which was widely praised for its thoroughness, clarity, and accuracy. The new book emphasises recent legal developments and new research, and has been expanded to include a full treatment of Belgium, where since 2002 euthanasia has also become legal. The book also includes descriptions written by local specialists of the legal situation and what is known about actual practice in a number of other European countries (England and Wales, France, Italy, Scandinavia, Spain, Switzerland). The book strives for as complete and dispassionate a description of the situation as possible. It covers in detail: - the substantive law applicable to euthanasia, physician-assisted suicide, withholding and withdrawing treatment, use of pain relief in potentially lethal doses, palliative and terminal sedation, and termination of life without a request (in particular in the case of newborn babies); -the process of legal development that has led to the current state of the law; -the system of legal control and its operation in practice; -the results of empirical research concerning actual medical practice. A concluding part deals with some general questions that arise out of the material presented: Is the legalisation of euthanasia an example of the decline of law or should it, on the contrary, be seen as part and parcel of the increasing juridification of the doctor-patient relationship? Does the Dutch experience with legalised euthanasia support the idea of a 'slippery slope' toward a situation in which life-especially of the more vulnerable members of society-is less effectively protected? Is it possible to explain and to predict when a society will decide to legalise euthanasia?

Information and knowledge have become crucial factors in modern labour markets. In this context, labour-management relations are characterised by an increasing and considerable flow of information. These developments are influenced by new management techniques, such as human resources management, in which the individual is identified as a key element in business success. Furthermore, there is the globalisation of the economy, the increase of international corporate mergers and the unfolding of the network society, which goes hand in hand with technological innovations. These developments not only multiplied the needs for information and the flow of data in employment relations, but also improved techniques of data processing revealing sensitive data of employees. This book deals with employment privacy law, a field of knowledge that increasingly gains influence in legal theory and daily practice. It concentrates on the legal regulation of general human resources data as well as sensitve data in the employment context. The book is developed within a comparative perspective, providing an overview and analysis of the Law of each Member State of the European Union in the field of study. It is completed by a comparative summary. Information and insights in this book will be of great value for practicing lawyers, human resources managers, academics, interest groups and policy makers. The specific issue of monitoring and surveillance in the workplace is covered in another highly recommended book,
