A review in the journal Disability & Society has described the latest book by Sunderland historian Dr Kevin Yuill as a 'timely and welcome' volume in an area often under-analysed by academics. Susie Balderston, from the Law School at Lancaster University suggests that Assisted Suicide: The Liberal, Humanist Case against Legalization (Palgrave, 2013) 'maturely delineates a consistently well-argued path through the thorny discrepancies of polarised debates, past and present'. Balderston maintains that the author 'has a refreshing talent for injecting readability into thorny subjects', and concludes her review by stating that the volume is 'by far the best book on this subject in many years; the author should be proud of this important volume that brilliantly and eloquently tackles injustice and prejudice around assisted suicide'.
