Examining the presence of abortion and euthanasia as two of the most deeply divisive moral issues of our time, Dworkin presents a brilliantly original view of these crucially related acts and their meaning in an ethically committed society. Life's Dominion offers as well the most complete and persuasive statement yet of Dworkin's theory of the United States Constitution. Transcending the perennial conflict between strict constructionists and liberal expansionists, Dworkin's analysis makes clear that the Constitution cannot responsibly be read as a set of narrow, historically limited rules, but is inescapably a system of abstract moral principles that must be reinterpreted, generation by generation, to insure equal concern for the dignity of all citizens.
