Herbert Hendin is medical director of the American Suicide Foundation and professor of psychiatry at New York Medical College. Considered a world-famous authority on suicide, Hendin is against doctor-assisted suicide. In his book Seduced by Death: Doctors, Patients, and Assisted Suicide, revised in March 1998, Hendin offers a persuasive argument against legalizing assisted suicide in the United States. He also shows what can be done to find better options for those who are faced with the decision of ending their lives rather than suffering from terminal illnesses. Other suicide-related books written by Hendin include The Age of Sensation, Black Suicide, The Gospel of Life, and Suicide in America. Hendin is the winner of the Louis I. Dublin Award of the American Association of Suicidology.
