This book is designed to fulfill three major goals. First, to let the reader know that some suicides can be prevented, and concepts are presented which can help to assist those in need. Secondly, to inform the reader that most suicides occur within a context-a family, a jail, a psychiatric hospital, and so forth. Careful post-mortem study of the
suicide or suicide attempt in these settings can bring about
improvements that minimize the likelihood that others will
act out. Finally, the practicing attorney who encounters a
suicide will, after reading this book, have in hand the tools and concepts needed to pursue the matter in the courts.

Brand: Brand: Peter Lang International Academic Publishers

Suicide stems in large part from the human condition and, as such, is not a problem that can be solved. Former draconian and punitive laws against it have in the main been eliminated, but it remains a stigma and a heartache. In the twentieth century, suicide has become a problem for sociologists, psychiatrists, and social policymakers to «solve.» In past centuries, however, suicide was a subject most fit for philosophers, theologians, writers, and, as the nineteenth century progressed, physicians. What establishes itself clearly throughout is that social attitudes and public policies toward suicide, as toward other important human issues, mirror the needs and peculiar circumstances of a culture. Yet sanctions against suicide, except in highly prescribed instances, transcend cultural specificity. To the question when, if ever, is suicide permissible, Western peoples and institutions, both secular and religious, reply, never. Duty to others, to God, to society, or to all of these, virtually always overrides personal desire or reasons to commit suicide.
