In Final Days Susan Long has given us a superb look into end-of-life decision-making in Japan.... The book is rich in ethnographic detail and very well written.... [It is] a remarkably nuanced and detailed examination of how people in Japan deal with conflicts between desires, for example, to die at home surrounded by family and the reality that most people in postindustrial societies will die in hospitals, surrounded by, as Long notes, medical equipment and staff, with family standing on the sidelines.... Final Days [should be] required reading for anyone interested in medical ethics. But the book also is an outstanding entry into the ethnographic literature on Japan." - Pacific Affairs
