The publisher Eleuthera, in Milan, Italy, has decided to translate and publish Derek Humphry’s latest book “The Good Euthanasia Guide: Where, What, and Who in Choices in Dying”. It will be on sale in a few months time.
Eleuthera continues to sell — as it has consistently since l992 — the Italian version of ‘Final Exit’ — “Eutanasia: Uscita Di Sicurezza: Istruzioni per l’uso”. The same book is also published in Spain under the title “El Ultimo Recurso” (Tusquets, Barcelona.)
This book trade activity indicates the rise in interest in Italy in the subject of the right to choose to die. And dispels the myth that Catholic countrries like Italy and Spain do not have an outspoken liberal wing.
